Access for ALL PLC is an interactive training focused on integrating technology within Universal Design for Learning educational framework within an inclusive classroom. Anyone is welcome to participate in the PLC training, if you would like to have a team participate in the PLC with coaching support, please contact Cindy Malone at firstname.lastname@example.org. See the Access for ALL PLC Description document for more information about the overall structure, goals and objectives, and timeline.
This session is to introduce the PLC to the Universal Design for Learning Framework. The goal is to create a foundation for understanding why this professional development experience will be meaningful to participants’ professional practice. Too often, professional development emphasizes “WHAT” will be presented as opposed to “WHY” that learning will be meaningful. Starting with the why establishes the purpose and context of the new learning. This session will reflect on the UDL baseline assessment results and generate team goals for the PLC.
Prior to the meeting, explore some of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) concepts we will be discussing during the meeting. Please pick 2 options to read, watch, or listen to from the materials below prior to our PLC meeting to prepare for the discussion and activity.
After participating in the PLC session take a moment to reflect on what resonated with you from the conversation, individually and as a team.
During this year-long Professional Learning event, we will discuss different topics monthly. After each session please share a short audio or video reflection on the Monthly Personal Reflections topic. Also, comment by typing, an audio, or video response to 2 other individuals who are not part of your team. The reflections are important for teams to identify learning, share, and get support on any barriers or difficulties, and so we can ultimately celebrate our successes.
The Team Liaison will organize the Team Reflection activity after the PLC meeting to reflect on goals, questions, and learning from the PLC meeting. Liaisons please work collaboratively with your PLC teams to complete each month’s discussion questions and post a text, audio, or video reflection on the Monthly Team Reflection topic.
