2014 UDL-IRN Summit
Understanding the Processes for, and Impact of UDL Implementation on Students, Teachers, Curriculum Developers, and Policy Makers
Jennifer Katz, University Of Manitoba
The Three-Block Model of UDL is a framework encompassing the cornerstones of inclusive education. Research indicates the model has significant, positive impacts on students’ self-concept, respect for diverse others, inclusivity, classroom climate, and social and academic engagement while reducing exclusion, and aggressive behaviour. Implementation of the model reduces teacher stress, and improves teacher efficacy relative to teaching diverse learners, and requires specific supports for effective implementation.
