Tool Kit on Universal Design for Learning - Introduction
OSEP Hosts National Summit and Launches New Attract, Prepare, Retain Resource Page
The 2020 OSEP Summit provided an opportunity by bringing together various stakeholders to explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. The virtual event was held over three days and participants had the opportunity to register for each event individually or attend all three. An archive of the event can be found on the 2020 OSEP National Summit webpage. OSEP also launched a new Attract, Prepare, Retain Resources Page that provides research and resources for stakeholders to explore potential strategies, innovative approaches, and additional resources regarding this topic!
In 2006, the U.S. Department of Education developed a Tool Kit on Teaching and Assessing Students with Disabilities (Tool Kit) to support the Department’s initiative to improve outcomes for students with disabilities. The Tool Kit focused on increasing states’ capacity to provide rigorous assessment, instruction, and accountability for students with disabilities. The Tool Kit on Universal Design for Learning is an additional component of the original Tool Kit, and offers a compilation of current information on universal design for learning (UDL).
