Mercedes Viola – ‘Inclusive and equitable quality education in ELT’
17 March 2018, 3pm GMT
We are going through a change of paradigm – from a selective education system to an inclusive one. Classrooms are highly diverse and curriculum needs to be designed to meet this diversity. Universal design for learning is an approach that minimizes barriers and maximizes learning for all students.
In this webinar we will discuss what this change of paradigm means and start looking at how we, English teachers, can apply the universal design for learning (UDL) framework to improve teaching and learning for all people.
