Making an inclusive learning environment a reality takes intention, planning, and time. Little by little, day by day, educators can move the needle by designing and delivering experiences MADE for everyone. Learners participating in these experiences work to solve authentic problems by crafting, creating, and generating artifacts that also demonstrate their learning. This session outlines key strategies educators can use to develop a culture where choice is at the center of the design of the learner experience.

-Discussion of embracing small adjustments to practices to create sustainable change to the culture of one’s own practice. (15 min)
-Presenters will share strategies to empower every learner to take charge of their own learning. (15 min)
