On this webinar, YouthBuild grantees will receive information on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is "a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn " (Lieberman, Lauren J., The Need for Universal Design for Learning, 2017).
The presenter will provide insights on how UDL connects to foundational YouthBuild and youth development principles and why this powerful framework can guide academic and vocational programming. YouthBuild grantees will also be introduced to Universal Design for Learning: A Toolkit of Strategies to Increase Student Engagement, a resource currently being developed to support YouthBuild programs with their implementation of UDL practices in their education component.
