In today’s increasingly diverse, borderless world, there is a growing need to provide culturally responsive, inclusive education for all students, irrespective of their identities, abilities, and backgrounds. One way to meet this need is by using theoretical frameworks to establish evidenced-based teaching and learning practices. In this session, we will i) examine key concepts related to culturally responsive and inclusive education, ii) discuss Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, and iii) explore ways to apply UDL to promote culturally responsive and inclusive practices in our classrooms. The end outcome is to nurture a culturally responsive, inclusive educational environment so that educators, students, and policymakers can actively participate in learning, grow and be agents of change.
