Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: Applying Universal Design for Learning in Low Ability Math Classes

The Universal Design for learning framework, developed by CAST.org, leverages research in education and neuroscience to provide teachers with a free tool that they can use to optimize teaching and learning for all students in all subjects.

Dates:08 Sep 2022 (Thu)
Time:8.30am - 12.30pm (Singapore Standard Time GMT+0800)
Venue:Live Online Training
Speaker: Cristina Post

Cristina Post, Ed.M., has a degree in Mind, Brain, and Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education, where her research focused on the cognitive effects of math anxiety on learning. She is an educational therapist with a specialty in math, and an experienced math and science teacher, having taught every grade from K-12. Cristina has also taught at Fitchburg State University in Massachusetts, where she facilitated a graduate-level course for public school teachers on Universal Design for Learning in Math with CAST.org. She specializes in understanding how education can support healthy brain development.

Cristina has presented her research in math education for the Association of Educational Therapists, the Association of Teachers of Mathematics in New England (ATMNE) annual conferences, and at schools throughout New England, both public and private.

Course Outline

This training will utilize strategies from the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to enhance learning in low ability math classes. We will look at dyscalculia in the brain, the natural development of the mathematical mind, and learn practical tips and strategies for developing number sense in low ability learners.

Course Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Understand dyscalculia and related learning goals
  2. Familiarize themselves with the three major UDL principles
  3. Understand how the guidelines support children with low abilities in math
  4. Adapt a math lesson using UDL guidelines
  5. Implement incremental change using UDL
Who Can Benefit?

This course will benefit teachers who want to foster the development of mathematical minds in young children, regardless of their ability level. While we will focus on elementary-aged children with dyscalculia, UDL can be applied at all grade and ability levels.

To Prepare:

Bring a short lesson plan that you would use with your students and be prepared to workshop that lesson in small groups.
