About this Event

The Ministry of Education invites you to a series of Zoom webinars that explore the connection of the Professional Learning and Development (PLD) priorities to other areas within the education sector.

This webinar is: Inclusion, neurodiversity and UDL and the PLD priorities, presented by Matt Frost, Ministry of Education.

Matt Frost, Principal Advisor Lived Experience shares his experiences on inclusion in the education system from a neurodiverse perspective. Matt will explore what it is like for learners with learning support needs to operate within the system today, at both a systemic level and how teacher practice within the classroom can enhance or inhibit progress and achievement for neurodiverse learners. Matt will discuss Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as a proxy for fostering learning environments that support teaching of students with neurodiverse needs.

The PLD priorities were introduced in late-2020. They are key levers to strengthen and shift teaching practice, capabilities, and educational leadership to support ākonga to realise their aspirations and thrive with their whānau and communities.

These sessions will be relevant to PLD facilitators, PLD provider organisations, schools, kura, PLD leads in schools, principals and tumuaki and regional office Ministry staff.

Please register for this event by clicking the "Register" button above. There are 100 spaces available for this session.

Another webinar on this topic will be held on Friday, 19 March 2021, 12:00 - 1:30pm. You only need to register for one session.
