Who Should Attend?

The Learning Series is an opportunity for teachers, leaders, and staff to dive head first into the many facets of Universal Design for Learning. While a majority of the content will be targeted towards K-12 educators, leaders and staff will find value in understanding how UDL will play a role in their schools and community and discover how UDL can be implemented into personal practices beyond the classroom.

The ultimate goal of this series is for each attendee to grow in their ability to create more accessible and equitable learning environments. Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate  of completion for 8 continuing education hours.

How the Program Works

The seven part series is designed to take you through an introduction to Universal Design for Learning. Each session will be hosted live by an expert in their space, sharing knowledge, strategies, opportunities for engagement with materials and one another, and leaving you with resources to explore on your own time as you begin to work through the materials in your day to day life. The materials will be available for you to access or download for one year from the start of the course so you can come back and review any time. If you are unable to attend sessions live, while suggested, that is no problem at all. Every session will be posted for review within 24 hours along with all materials and resources. At the end of each session within the portal, there is an opportunity for self-reflection where learners can test their knowledge and continue to build and grow.

Is there any required coursework?

No there are no due dates or required materials for the Virtual Learning Series. However, if you wish to receive the completion certificate at end of the series from Novak Education, you will need to complete the four-five question assessment at the end of each session (7 total). They can be taken as many times as needed and are managed asynchronously and on your schedule. The goal is ensuring that the learning goals were met. 

How will I be able to review the materials from the series?

All materials will be hosted in our Thinkific platform. Prior to the course, we will send you an invite to join the platform. There you will be able to review all recordings, resources, materials, and presentations. You can also engage with other classmates if you choose. 

Do I have to complete this by a certain date? 

We recommend following the schedule and attending sessions live. But if you miss a session or need to play catch up, all of the materials are at the ready when you are.
