We would love to hear about your successes in using technology to support learning at home. If you are comfortable, record a brief (less than a minute) video testimonial and post it to a social media platform of your choice and let us know about it by tagging us: @CAST_UDL  on Twitter, @CASTUDL on Facebook. 

AEM Café

Every first Thursday of the month from 1:00 – 2:00 pm PT / 4:00 – 5:00 pm ET, we’ll focus on a topic, share some little-known resources from the AEM Center, and the rest is up to you. Show up, chat, ask questions, or just listen to the conversation. The AEM Café is open and ready to welcome you.

Register once for the entire AEM Café monthly series

Accessibility Practices for Teachers

The AEM Center hosts webinars focusing on tools and resources to support the transition to remote learning in response to COVID-19. You can watch the recordings and download the handouts and slide decks from the  AEM Events page, where you can also register for upcoming webinars as they are announced.
