College STAR Events

Below you will find a list of conferences that are typically for higher education professionals implementing UDL.

CAST UDL Symposium - July 30, 2018

This year’s UDL Symposium was an opportunity to come together as a community to explore the promise of Universal Design for Learning for empowering learners. By engaging in sessions designed to encourage critical conversations, problem-solving, and hands-on exploration, participants considered empowerment through a UDL lens. Participants left with a deeper understanding of the important role empowerment plays in learning and with concrete examples of ways to leverage UDL for these critical aims. We hope our participants left with the confidence and the motivation to apply their learning to their practice—and with a new network of colleagues to encourage and support their efforts.

ISETL 2018 - October 10, 2018

Founded on the principle of post-secondary student-centered learning from its outset, this organization’s name altered several times over its first thirty-three-years as it blended with, or absorbed, other societies with similar interests and aims.  In 1970, the International Audio-Tutorial Congress (IATC) was born with Sam Postlethwait as the first president. Concurrently, other organizations emerged with developing methods to improve the teaching and learning process through active student involvement. The most widely known of these organizations in those  years advocated such programs as Guided Design (GD), the Personal System of Instruction (PSI), and Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI). While GD was a significant method for both the International Congress on Individualized Instruction (ICII) and the International Society on Individualized Instruction (ISII), organizations advocating PSI and CAI learning methods evolved more independently.
