How might we support educators to learn about UDL through experiences that are more interactive, constructivist, and learner-centered? The Professional Learning Team at CAST explored this question through a study that examined the potential of a case-based teaching approach. Participants in the study explored a case of an elementary school wrestling with dilemmas associated with supporting diverse learners. Participants assumed active roles and immersed themselves in the real-life challenges presented in the case. In this session, we will collaboratively explore initial findings that reveal how participants experienced the case-based approach and reflect on the usefulness of case-based teaching.
