Yesterday, MAUDeL met to plan our next two years. We went through a PATH process led by Rod Lauder and Cheryl Martens. We wanted to set goals, and begin to plan practical steps for getting there. Our organization is a collective - a collective of passionate, inspiring people who care deeply about inclusive education and the educators, students, and families involved in it. We have members from the Manitoba Teachers' Society, Manitoba Education, Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Center, Manitoba Association for Community Living, the three Manitoba universities, and many school divisions. We have begun to develop goals and a vision - but I'd like to ask you for your input - what should our goals be? What are your dreams for education in Canada or the US? Please comment!
I am an associate professor at the University of Manitoba in Inclusive Education, and the developer of the Three Block Model of Universal Design for Learning.
