Allison Posey returns to spend a day with us. Allison Posey participates in curricular design, online course instruction, and leads professional learning programs, including the CAST UDL Symposium. She works with educators to integrate and apply current understandings from brain research about learning into instructional practices so that all learners are able to access, integrate and become expert learners.
Allison's Keynote Professional Learning with UDL. There is a neuromyth that brain development is completed by adulthood, but we know now that this not the case. Some of our most dynamic, expert learning happens as adults! In this conversation, we will explore how the brain learns, from early development through adulthood, and reflect on what this means from the design and implementation of adult professional learning. With this perspective, and the lens of UDL, we will discuss how to suppor the variability of adult learners to be purposeful, resourceful, and strategic towards their passions. When we better understand how we learn ourselves, we can better empathize with our students and proactively design for all.
