This workshop will present and model UDL principles in the arts classroom. Participants will be presented with sample lessons, images, and inclusive art making approaches. The workshop will focus on developing the creative process for all students through discussion and hands-on collaborative exercises.
Participants will be introduced the three principles of UDL and understand their basic implementation. Learning to apply these principles in the arts classroom with the understanding that these inclusive strategies can and should be applied to any learning situation.
In true UDL fashion, participants will be introduced to these ideas through images and discussion, and then demonstrate these concepts in hands-on learning followed by reflection and q&a.
