Discussion of year three of a three-year UDL initiative: the barriers and challenges, the successes, and the future.
The implementation of UDL, when unsupported by administration and funding, can be a challenging venture. A three-year roadmap was developed to guide a campus-wide UDL initiative (this roadmap has been shared the past two years at AHG). Now in the third year of the three-year journey, the roadmap continues to evolve.
Learn what the challenges and barriers have been to the campus-wide UDL initiative; hear how barriers have been avoided and/or overcome through alternative strategies; and share in the recognition and celebration of small successes, ultimately creating a measure of slow, but sure progress. We also will discuss how to keep motivated, how to keep the momentum going, and what year four might hold?
- The potential challenges in implementing UDL campus-wide.
- How to overcome the barriers to a campus-wide initiative.
- What to count as a success in UDL integration.
