This session will invite you to ask who owns the learning and why we need to end teaching to the average. Barbara will walk you through Universal Design for Learning, why everyone can build their one personal learning backpack, and review how to address teaching and learning approaches so learners have a voice and choice Join Barbara to bring back curiosity and develop learner agency by reimagining new ways of teaching and learning in uncertain times.
