K-7 teachers working in public or private schools in BC… learn more about teaching students with Down syndrome while sharing your experience with UDL to inform the design of a workshop for educators on these topics.

Danielle McKinney, Senior Teacher at the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation and student in the Master of Education in Special Education program at Vancouver Island University, is recruiting BC teachers to participate in this research study, offering a unique opportunity for participants to contribute to the design process as we learn from and collaborate with each other. The study consists of:

  • Completing a 15-minute survey
  • Three free online workshops (1.5 hrs each), taking place in January 2023
  • Activities (additional 3 hours outside of the workshop sessions)
  • Review of final product (workshop) and draft results of the study (optional – 1 hour)
