Professional Development Training Program

Getting Started

You are about to begin the Teaching All Students, Reaching All Learners professional development training program. The purpose of this program is to support postsecondary faculty and staff by providing information on ways to improve postsecondary education outcomes for all students, including those with disabilities. Increasing understanding of 1) Universal Design for Learning (UDL); 2) Assistive Technology (AT); 3) Knowledge about students with hidden, or invisible disabilities; and 4) Rights and responsibilities related to students in postsecondary education, will enhance education for all students. The four training curricula are intended both to facilitate acquiring this knowledge and to evaluate an understanding of it. Those who complete the test will receive a Certificate of Completion that may be used in resumes or for promotion or tenure information. The test may be taken at any time before, during, or after any one or all of the sections are completed. The Certificate will be awarded at the end of this training upon successful completion of the test with a score of 80% or higher. Thanks for sharing your time with us! Please feel to provide feedback to Steve Brown, Project Coordinator, at sebrown@hawaii.edu.
