About this Learning Opportunity

Few would argue the importance of feedback to increase student growth and achievement. Yet teachers and students alike continue to struggle with how to best give and receive the kind of  inclusive feedback that truly moves learning forward, while at the same time encouraging student agency. 

Using a UDL lens, this session will explore some of the best practices and conditions that provide students and teachers the multimodal means of engagement in the feedback process.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
