About
This session dives into an impact study Goalbook conducted in conjunction with WestEd and DC Public schools, using a mixed-methods approach to answer the following research questions:
  • What impact does the UDL framework have on teacher classroom practice?
  • How can districts support teachers’ use of UDL in classrooms?
This study examined how the UDL framework is used to design instruction and facilitate differentiated lesson planning through instructional coaching at the K-12 level. The findings support the body of research that suggests the UDL framework aids educators in designing differentiated learning experiences accessible for all learners. Both teachers and instructional coaches cited Goalbook Toolkit as a critical tool in utilizing the UDL framework within their instructional design and coaching. Ongoing evaluations following this initial study reveal promising applications of increased teacher efficacy in understanding and applying UDL principles and strategies to support diverse learner needs.
