Time: 8:00 – 9:00 pm EST

Description: Universal Design for Learning…

Many of you will have encountered this term at conferences, in training and publications. It sounds appealing, ground breaking and slightly daunting!

This session will seek to introduce the basic concepts of Universal Design for Learning from a hands-on-perspective: What is it? Why is it becoming increasingly important in achieving inclusion? How can I start exploring and implementing it as a teacher everyday in my own clasroom?

PresenterFrederic Fovet
Frederic brings to the field of inclusion a unique profile in the sense that he has a combined background in Law (he was a practising solicitor in the UK) and an academic research interest in Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (he holds a MEd in SEBD from the University of Birmingham in the UK). It is undoubtedly this dual perspective that makes UDL so appealing. He has himself been a Special Ed teacher and the principal of a residential school for adolescents with Learning Disabilities and behaviour difficulties for over a decade, before triggering at the head of the OSD at McGill a radical and campus wide drive for UDL implementation.
