DEVELOPING AN INCLUSIVE CURRICULUM
How the curriculum is interpreted and implemented can be the first barrier to the learning process. Participants will explore how they can practically break down barriers to the Australian Curriculum, by collaboratively identifying key knowledge and skills, and identifying what students actually need to demonstrate.
DEEPLY KNOWING YOUR LEARNERS
To ensuring that planning, teaching, and assessment are inclusive for all learners, educators need to deeply know their students. Participants will explore how they can practically deepen their knowledge of their students so they can create inclusive learning experiences that support all learners.
DEEPENING KNOWLEDGE OF THE UDL PRINCIPLES
THE UDL framework is a proactive approach to supporting all learners to access the learning process. Participants will deepen their understanding
of the UDL principles and how these can be practically applied within classrooms.
DEVELOPING INCLUSIVE LESSONS FOR ALL STUDENTS
By proactively identifying the requirements of the Australian Curriculum and the strengths and challenges of their students, teachers can identify effective UDL strategies which they embed within their lesson planning. Participants will develop an understanding of how they develop inclusive lesson plans using the UDL principles.
