About

The UDL- SICC Goal Setting and Planning Tool can be used to turn data from the UDL-SICC Self-Assessment into meaningful, realistic implementation goals. School teams may choose to build on areas of UDL implementation strength or focus on areas of needed growth. Setting goals across several domains helps ensure a global, holistic approach to UDL school improvement.

UDL-SICC Self-Assessment

The Universal Design for Learning School Implementation and Certification Criteria (UDL-SICC) self-assessment is a tool that allows you to reflect on where your school is in terms of UDL implementation.

No votes yet

About

The self-assessment is designed to help school teams map their school’s current UDL practices to determine where they are and what next steps they can take on their UDL journey. Leadership teams use school data to identify areas of strength and growth related to schoolwide UDL practices and to identify potential entry points for improving UDL implementation. School teams can use the outcomes of this self-assessment to:  

  • determine an area of focus;
  • set an improvement goal;
  • identify ongoing data that can be used to substantiate progress toward the goal;
  • develop an action plan; 
  • determine a timeline for revisiting and revising the plan and goal; and
  • determine readiness for UDL School Certification

UDL-SICC Full Criteria

The Universal Design for Learning School Implementation and Certification Criteria (UDL-SICC) defines high-quality, schoolwide, UDL implementation. 

No votes yet

About

The UDL-SICC Full Criteria document provides a comprehensive description of the SICC. The UDL-SICC is built around four domains; School Culture and Environment, Teaching and Learning, Leadership and Management, and Professional Learning. They provide an organizational structure for thinking about schoolwide UDL implementation. Each domain is defined by its four elements, which guide implementation and are measured during certification. It includes grounding information about the criteria organization and structure, and provides detailed information, by domain, for all elements. Each element is defined by intent, indicator, and level. 

  • Intent describes the purpose behind the element and its significance to school-wide UDL implementation.
  • Indicators define and set the standard for full implementation of each element, and are used to monitor progress toward implementation. 
  • Levels describe the continuum of practices that improve implementation, leading to certification of the element.

UDL-SICC Implementation Readiness Indicators Tool

The Universal Design for Learning School Implementation and Certification Criteria (UDL-SICC) Implementation Readiness Indicators Tool is designed to help school teams determine their readiness to begin effective, systemic UDL implementation.

No votes yet

About

The UDL Implementation Readiness Indicators Tool supports school teams with determining a school’s readiness for UDL Implementation, helps teams avoid the potentially costly mistake of launching implementation efforts prematurely.

It’s important to recognize that readiness is contextual. A school team may be ready to scale up one initiative while still exploring readiness for another. All schools have unique qualities and needs. Understanding your school’s attributes will help your team determine where to begin your UDL implementation journey.

Creating Student Success Through Teacher PD

This session will show you how using a model of professional development, support within the PLC, and on-going collaboration with teachers impacted student achievement during the implementation phases of Universal Design for Learning.

Average: 4 (1 vote)

About
Todd Rose, says, “There is no such thing as an average learner”. As a special education coach and a G/T coach, collaboration around students with “jagged profiles” is a top priority. The principles of UDL are especially important in designing instruction to engage and ensure success for ALL students on the edges. As we have learned about the power of Universal Design for Learning, we have grown to see that what’s good for one may be good for many.

This session will show you how using a model of professional development, support within the PLC, and on-going collaboration with teachers impacted student achievement during the implementation phases of Universal Design for Learning.

Participants will leave with our UDL implementation template, information and links to engagement strategies employed during our session, as well as links to videos, photos, and activities which support representation and action and expression.

About
It is a learning process to develop and implement lessons through applications of UDL principles. As teachers become more fluent in the UDL applications to their teaching practices, refreshing and advancing current teaching ideas and strategies can be challenging. Our presentation highlights how classroom teachers can advance their current teaching practices that they are comfortable with through reviewing their UDL applications from different angles. Resources and strategies are discussed and shared during this presentation.

Creating School Based UDL Implementation Plans

Creating School Based UDL Implementation Plans

This presentation focuses on how a collaboration between the administration and school leadership team (i.e., instructional coaches) and university partners developed a three year plan for rolling out and implementing principles of UDL in schoolwide systems, classroom instructional practices, and assessment and data analysis conducted at all levels of the school.

No votes yet

About
Universal Design for Learning is a conceptual framework that can support the proactive planning of addressing learner variability in the classroom. As classrooms continue to evolve and include students who represent different experience, ability, engagement or interest, and cultural and linguistic diversity, it is important for schools to have an ongoing and systematic plan for addressing the variability of all students. This presentation focuses on how a collaboration between the administration and school leadership team (i.e., instructional coaches) and university partners developed a three year plan for rolling out and implementing principles of UDL in schoolwide systems, classroom instructional practices, and assessment and data analysis conducted at all levels of the school. Reflections and lessons learned in the first year of implementation of this plan with content area professional learning communities are shared, with suggestions for handling UDL fail and collecting stakeholder feedback also discussed.

About
As more schools and districts adopt the UDL framework, describing the relationship between universal design and student/teacher outcomes emerges as a persistent need for practitioners and researchers. This breakout session shares the results of a review of the current literature and practice around UDL implementation fidelity measures, and engages participants in identifying critical factors in assaying UDL implementation at the building and district level. The results of this session will help inform field testing of a potential UDL implementation fidelity tool.
