A Brain-Based Approach to Learner Variability
What is learner variability, why is it important, and how can we proactively design for it? Join us as we unpack the core ideas behind Universal Design for Learning and explore three major networks in the brain. This session will highlight the brain research behind how students engage with information, how they perceive it, and how they act and express what they know.

Participants will explore
