Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Take the theory of UDL and put it into practice to optimize teaching and learning for all. Lessoncast offers dynamic keynotes, engaging workshops, and ongoing consultation to help P12 and higher education communities implement UDL.

Tailored Community of Practice

Our most popular offering is the yearlong community of practice. Whether your UDL initiative is in year 1, 3, or 13, the community of practice option is designed to support UDL implementation through tailored, synchronous PD sessions and facilitated interaction among participants. With access to an online group, exclusive to your school or district, educators gain on-demand coaching and community collaboration.

Nicole does a wonderful job of simplifying the UDL Framework so that educators can dive right in and apply new learning and instructional strategies immediately.

Why use Lessoncast to support UDL PD?

Danielle Cugalj, Assistant Principal at International Preparatory School in Buffalo, NY, shares how partnering with Lessoncast builds teacher capacity to put UDL into practice.

When teachers can actually see what other people are doing right next door to them - dealing with the same population and the same kinds of struggles and issues, it helps them to have the resources right there.
