The INCLUDE Collaboratory: Building an International Network of Professionals to Grow and Share Exemplary Inclusive Practices in Education
Abstract: The INCLUDE Collaboratory, formed in 2019 by Dr. Richard Jackson and Dr. Sean Bracken is an international professional network aimed at providing opportunities for professional networking, content and resource sharing, professional development, research focused on Universal Design for Learning, and inclusive educational policies and practices in HE and beyond around the world. The organization aligns with the work of SITE, as it fosters global connections among teacher educators, programs, and systems, particularly through the integration of technology to support diverse learners. Through this roundtable discussion, topics will be discussed relating to international issues that challenge, support, and promote equity and inclusion in higher education. Next steps will be identified for how the INCLUDE Collaboratory can collaborate with the SITE UDL SIG and others in the linking of like-minded teacher educators and projects that provide greater access and facilitate Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
