A research reader in universal design for learning.


A research reader in universal design for learning.

Ed. by Gabrielle Rappolt-Schlichtmann, Samantha G. Daley and L. Todd Rose.

Harvard Education Press


256 pages



Rappolt-Schlichtmann, Daley, and Rose (Center for Applied Special Technology) assemble six essays that address the core concepts and assumptions of the universal design for learning (UDL) framework and how UDL can bridge research in the learning sciences with educational practice. Specialists working in the US and the Netherlands in learning technologies, education, psychology, statistics, and other areas consider major research areas and how they inform UDL, specifically the social and contextual nature of learning, the balance between learners actively and freely developing their own understandings and educators guiding or limiting their exploration, the relationship between emotion and cognition, the dynamics of scaffolding, how outliers learn, and modeling variability among individuals.
