Designing Learning to Empower, Honor & Engage ALL Students

Register as a school/district team for discounted pricing!

Join educators from across Fairfield County and beyond for two full days of professional learning, networking, & instructional design training with award-winning author and field expert, Andratesha Fritzgerald!

Learn more about how to practically apply Universal Design for Learning while naming and eliminating barriers for students and staff with the support of a recognized field expert.

Attendees will participate in two full days of professional development focused on implementing research-based strategies and culturally responsive practices to help ensure all educators are able to meet students’ academic, social, emotional, and future-readiness needs, including instructional design strategies to accelerate learning without remediation or tracking. Additionally, the two-day workshop will allow educators a space to contemplate and respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students, particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, and children with disabilities.
