Background Scoping Document
A Conceptual Framework of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) for the Irish Further Education and Training Sector: ‘Where Inclusion is Everyone’s Business’.
This background scoping document represents the outcomes from the first phase of the project. By building on its own knowledge of this field, an international literature review, and consultation with members of the Advisory Committee, AHEAD has set out the background to this project, explaining universal design as a concept, tracing the development of universal design for learning, discussing theoretical approaches and highlighting key theoretical concepts which need to be considered for the development of UDL for FET guidelines and the successful implementation of UDL approaches in further education and training.
Key concepts identified include the application of the CAST model of Universal Design for Learning and the need to recognise the diversity and experience of FET practitioners and their need for structured opportunities to share their understanding and practice of UDL.
The resources required by AHEAD to co-coordinate this initiative in FET are funded as part of the UDL for FET project – A project of AHEAD commissioned by SOLAS and ETBI. The project is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
