Self advocacy is a critical skill in becoming a life-long learner that is college and career ready. An expert learner is one who has agency and can self-advocate based on a good understanding of his or her strengths, challenges and personal interests. The goal of this workshop is to provide participants with a process and a set of practical tools that will guide every learner in developing self-advocacy skills through the application of the UDL lens (Access, Engage and Express) in order to create a more learner-centered classroom that emphasizes agency and self-regulation.
