Universal Design Center: Building a Network of Strategic and Coordinated Support
Presented by Paul Miller, Ed.D., Professional Development Director at Montgomery College
The session will explore Montgomery College's Universal Design Center - a networked system of supports designed to provide quality professional development and job-embedded coaching to support and promote quality teaching and learning through communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
As the education community adjusts to the use of alternative service delivery models to support the continuum of teaching and learning, participants will explore the coordinated efforts of Montgomery College to establish a Universal Design Center responsible for providing a networked system of supports responsible for providing job-embedded professional development to all faculty and staff. Throughout this session, participants will be engaged using polls and breakout rooms to learn, explore, demonstrate, and apply knowledge that supports Montgomery College’s professional development mission of providing access, equity, and excellence.
