Better Learning by Design – Round 2

Hi everyone,

Just a note to let you know that the initial planning for the 2nd Annual Better Learning by Design Conference is getting underway.  The tentative dates are May 17-18, 2011.  Some of the suggestions and comments from last year’s conference will be incorporated into this year’s schedule.  Start thinking about what you would like to present at this year’s conference as the RFP will be hitting email boxes in the next couple of months.

We are looking forward to more vendors, more presenters, more attendees, more information, more tracks, more fun and a whole lot MORE.

If you missed last year’s conference you are welcome to look at the blog that was created during the conference.  The site address is https://blog.uvm.edu/udl-2010conference.  This blog will give you a flavor for what is to come.  We plan to have basic and advanced track presentations so that the people who participated last year will be able to gain additional insights this year.

Mark your calendar and let’s get excited about UDL.

One thought on “Better Learning by Design – Round 2

  1. Exciting morning presentation. During Dr. Rose’s description of his course in which he had students spend time figuring out how they would engage their students, before working on the content they would present, I realized, it’s possible for students to use that same sequence in managing learning for themselves. For instance, in designing a final project, what if the first step were — how am I going to engage myself with the project? I think it might help a lot of students over the hump of follow through with independent work.

    I’ll miss this afternoon’s presentations – I’m teaching a poetry-writing class for adults with developmental disabilities. But I’ll be back tomorrow. Looking forward to it! Judy
