Session Synopsis

In this session, Nicola will explore the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) approach. This is based on the idea of planning for, rather than being surprised by diversity.

UDL is built on respect for individuality, an understanding of intersectionality and a commitment to ensuring that everyone is celebrated. 

Nicola will argue that there is no such person as a mythical 'norm' - everyone is different and everyone belongs.
