Title: One Way Teaching is the Wrong Way to Learning
Description: One of the first things a teacher must do when considering how to teach students is to acknowledge that each student does not learn in the same way. Much of the material used to educate students at grade levels beyond primary school is largely text and lecture based, which have significant limitations and often have barriers to learning. While reading is a very important learning mode, not all students learn effectively from reading. In this webinar, participants will explore some of the barriers in learning content material.

Title: True Grit Teaching
Description: Grit is passion and perseverance for students to achieve long-term goals. Grit is sticking with the future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality. The best idea about building grit in kids is called growth mindset. Growth mindset is the belief that the ability to learn is not fixed, that it can change with your effort. As educators, we must try to cultivate this mindset in our students.
In this brief webinar, we will explore the research and share ideas about helping acquire this disposition for academic success!

Title: Purposeful Planning = Meaningful Instruction
Description: Until robots are teaching in our classrooms, educators must spend adequate time planning lessons for an engaging curriculum. As teachers become familiar with the instructional framework of Universal Design for Learning, they need to know how to successfully integrate the principles into meaningful lessons. This process is created during the development of lessons. Participants will see how one lesson has been UDL-ized to include all students during this
exciting session!

Title: Co-Teaching + UDL = Success!
Description: Co-Teaching is like a marriage. There is give-and-take. Each need to know their strengths and weaknesses AND one does not rule over the other. In this webinar, patrons will exam the benefits of co-teaching and co-planning. Just as when you’re working on your own, planning is an essential part of teaching. Planning is a little more complicated, though, when you’re doing it collaboratively. How will you divide up the work? Who will take the lead when? What exactly are you going to teach and how will you teach and assess student learning? Patrons will receive a few general tips for collaborative planning when co-teaching.

Title: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Data Collection
Description: Data collection doesn’t have to be hard however it is necessary. If we don’t know how it is working, then we don’t know how to make it better. Join a state and regional provider to discuss how one district took on data collection to show the progress with UDL Lesson Planning.

Title: Why Growth Mindset is so Important to the Universal Design for Learning Framework
Description: This 30-minute webinar will focus on how educators with the Growth Mindset have an easy time implementing Universal Design for Learning.
