How to apply?

Applicants are selected on the basis of seven criteria.

If you are interested, please submit a letter of intent addressing the six first criteria:

  • Degree of interest in inclusive pedagogy
  • Degree of interest for changing your own pedagogy
  • Degree of interest to develop and implement UDL in one of your courses
  • Personal expectations about the Community of Practice UDL@Dawson
  • Motivation to share this experience with the Dawson Community and the College Network (create a portfolio for the UDL@Dawson website and give presentations during different events (ex: AQPC Colloquium, DALC, Dawson Ped Day, etc.)
  • Name and Department: variety of departments, range of backgrounds, approaches and/or pedagogical models will be criteria for the selection
  • Please let us know if you applied to another community of practice for the year 21-22. If to many applicants apply, priority will be given to those who are NOT already involved in another community the same year. We strongly think that it is better to keep the focus on one community and only on one big reflexive process at a time.

When submitting your letter of intent, please add to your response the following question (note that this information is not part of the selection criteria)

What is your level of familiarity with Universal Design for Learning? 

·         None

·         Basic

·         Intermediate

When submitting your letter, please also advice your Chairperson and Sector Dean.
