The Global Partners Infographic provides an overview of the results from an initial distribution of a survey to find out what information people outside of the US are seeking about UDL.

The countries represented at this time are Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, and Singapore.

The roles represented include: educators, policy makers, trainers, and researchers

The challenges identified by this group include: Time to design resources, implementation, systems change, ingrained poor practice and beliefs.

Ways the group would like to learn toward mastery: listening, reflecting, watching, formative assessments, and implementation.

Why the group would like to connect: “Ideas, connections, wisdom, experiences, resources.”; “Good folk passionate about social justice, equity and innovation in education.”; “The concept of UDL itself and good atmosphere around UDL. This is the first time for me to get involved with UDL-IRN. I’m looking forward.”

How might the committee benefit you: “It would be good to know where the hotspots of UDL are around the world so we can support one another and connect as we move around the world.”; “Maybe, I think this is a forum or platform for people like me who are far away to have like- minded discussions and sharings.”
