Description & Coverage
Description:

Universal Design for Learning has been hailed for now over a decade as a revolutionary lens that allows schools to shift their efforts to create inclusive environments, from a medical model lens to a social model approach. In recent years, Universal Design for Learning has gone beyond disability and impairment and is now being considered as an effective tool to create inclusive classroom provisions for Indigenous Students, and more widely, for culturally diverse learners. There is now a sizable body of literature that details the benefits of implementing Universal Design for Learning in the K-12 sector. There is, however, a paucity of studies and papers examining the strategic challenges of developing Universal Design for Learning across schools and school boards.

While the initial concern has been to evidence the pedagogical benefits of introducing Universal Design for Learning to the classroom, the challenges discussed at this current stage by classroom practitioners and school leaders are of a different nature: they are strategic in nature and focus specifically on the organizational hurdles of scaling up initial efforts. It is time for the Universal Design for Learning implementation drive in the K-12 sector to go beyond curiosity and to explore sustainable growth and development. This book offers case studies and practical examples of the reflection which accompanies the systemic implementation of Universal Design for Learning on a wider scale across schools and school boards. It examines the full spectrum of ecological repercussions this growth leads to.
