Secondary Career and Technical Education (CTE) has long been a viable pathway for developing the skills of students with disabilities and preparing them for the future. Changes in Perkins V and an increasing emphasis on college and career readiness for all students are bringing the needs of students with disabilities to the forefront of the CTE conversation.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a method to improve learning for all students. This webinar provides you with the CAST framework of UDL and explanations for how one district incorporates UDL into their CTE programs. In addition, fundamentals of differentiated instruction to support effective teaching, individualized learning and maximize student engagement are shared.
Be sure to catch all five webinars in this CTE Webinar series sponsored by Penn State University's Workforce Education program, the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition: the Collaborative (NTACT:C), and the Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE).
