explore potential uses. UDL: Cognitive Neuroscience Wrap Up On Thursday, March 3rd, Dean Lorion introduced Todd

On Thursday, March 3rd, Dean Lorion introduced Todd Rose of CAST and Harvard Graduate School to an audience of over 200 participants including teachers, parents, higher ed. faculty, pre-service educators, administrators, curriculum specialists from MSDE and two members of the education ministry of Thailand. Participants were engaged in an interactive lecture experience focused on working memory and recognition networks, while workshop attendees the following day enjoyed the opportunity to think beyond the initial lecture and delve into methods for modeling UDL principles in their own classes.

“Todd has made me consider my own teaching. I really want to reframe some of the more archaic thinking of instructional strategies and “retrofit” them with the UDL framework,” remarks one faculty member. Participants indicated that Todd’s conversational presentation style and skillful application of research combined to produce a thoughtful, collaborative learning environment.

Teaching pre-service teachers in courses such as ISTC 201 and ISTC 301, I am able to share my passion for teaching with technology both online and face-to-face. I am currently working with Dr. Bill Sadera, Dr. Liyan Song, and Ms. Liz Berquist piloting changes in ISTC 301:

Another faculty attendee wrote, “Todd’s lecture spoke to me on many levels… I also really loved how he stressed that UDL should not be seen as “the next great thing,” but to focus on its relevancy to mind brain education and as a living breathing framework for “high performance learning.”

For anyone interested in hearing Todd’s classroom lectures, seeing materials or reading more about UDL, links to Todd Rose and UDL resources can be found on the COE wiki- http://edportfolio.wikispaces.com/UDL. Todd’s lecture topics include “Disability vs. Variability,” “Learning Net- works” and much more. You’ll also find a link to a very helpful blog on Universal Design for Learning compiled by Liz Berquist. Many thanks to Liz and the College of Education for organizing the event.

Integrating Educational Technology. Our goal is to maintain the technology integration focus while incorporating the tenets of Universal Design for Learning and TPACK (Technology, Pedagogy and Content Knowledge) to enhance the application of good pedagogy and technology use. We are using many Web 2.0 tools (such as Wordle, Audacity, Bubbl.us, Vocaroo, Prezi, and Delicious) to enhance content delivery and model multiple ways students can “show what they know.” We are also using Blackboard wikis and blogs for asynchronous collaboration and WebEx web-conferencing software for synchronous online classes.
