Universal Design for Learning-Dr. Brooks Vostal

November 13, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am CST

Ohio Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders is pleased to invite you to the next event in our 21-22 “Take a Breath” Series: Universal Design for Learning, presented by Dr. Brooks Vostal.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an evidence-based, scientifically valid framework for planning and delivering instruction that fosters access for all children.  The fundamental premise behind UDL is that lessons can be planned in ways that readily adapt to the variability among students, rather than expecting students to adapt to – or teachers to retro-fit – lessons to meet students’ needs. This presentation will introduce teachers to the UDL Principles of Multiple means of Engagement, Representation, and Action & Expression. We will examine a lesson planning tool that structures a way to use UDL and describe well-researched strategies that can be used as part of UDL to support learners.
Dr. Brooks Vostal is a professor of special education at Bowling Green State University.  He was formerly an English teacher and intervention coordinator at Talawanda High School in Oxford, Ohio.  His teaching and research focus on impacting students’ academic task engagement and preparing teachers to implement academic and behavioral interventions in inclusive settings.

Grab a coffee, take a breath and join us for a laid back Saturday morning with others who share your love for supporting kids with emotional and behavioral needs.
