Session Description
The sketch of a student who is apathetic or disengaged in learning is common. What brings students to purpose and ownership? To wonder, and to recognize how options available support the goals that matter to them? Universal Design for Learning and Personalized Learning intersect to help educators understand how a learner-centered instructional design will craft the context and options students crave. Come and learn strategies that matter in challenging students and give them the power to choose success.
