WCSU’s Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) and CAST.org partnered to offer a new customized and contextualized Universal Design for Learning (UDL) training for WCSU faculty and staff.

The collaboration will involve the training of two cohorts (AY 21/22, AY 22/23), training of WCSU UDL trainers, and partnership in developing novel UDL training programs for higher education institutions.

The first diverse cohort of 17 faculty and staff members will start the online synchronous training on 5/24/2021 and will conclude in December 2021. The training will focus on advancing learning and teaching in First Year (FY) and 100-level courses.
