About

UDL’s principles enable educators in higher education institutions to reach all students through multiple means of Engagement, Representation, and Action and Expression. While there is substantial evidence supporting UDL in the academic setting, the application of UDL principles in the clinical setting is less well explored. The purposes of this pilot project are (a) to develop a curriculum for coaching clinical educators in application of the UDL framework in their practice and (b) to provide coaching and technical assistance to implement UDL with students in clinical settings.

About

This mixed methods study investigated the effects of coaching as professional development on teachers’ knowledge and application of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. Treatment participants received a coaching cycle on UDL implementation from their building UDL coach, and comparison participants did not receive coaching. The results showed that teachers overall made gains in knowledge and application of UDL. Qualitative data revealed that teachers valued and changed practice from the use of coaching. While the results were interesting, they did not yield a statistically significant interaction between coaching and the increase in self-reported UDL knowledge, application, or observed application.

About

Research in social neuroscience fosters our understanding of the development of social and emotional competence in the classroom. This translates into essential instructional elements for students with autism while creating a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) for all students. The outcomes of the Social Emotional Engagement Knowledge and Skills (SEE-KS) focus on ensuring that learning strategies are implemented by fostering student engagement, presenting information in multiple ways, promoting student participation and ensuring equitable access for students at various developmental stages.

About

Given the current educational climate, new initiatives can be about as popular as the flu at a family gathering. Even with the best of intentions and preparation, systemic changes are often met with uncertainty, skepticism, and sometimes, cynicism. Those charged with putting what may seem as even more responsibilities and expectations on the already overflowing plates of educators have an obligation to ensure new learning and efforts to support implementation are relevant and effective, both immediately and across time. This resouce will examine one county’s approach to generating interest in Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and supporting implementation at multiple levels, by putting teachers back in the driver’s seat of their own professional learning.
