Universal Design for Learning

Universal Design for Learning logoUniversal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for proactively reducing barriers in order to accelerate a learner’s access to content. Much like the architectural concept of Universal Design which encourages, for instance, that ramps be available instead of just stairs, UDL advocates for multiple academic routes for every learner. UDL supports learners by:

  •  Providing flexibility in the ways that information is presented
  •  Allowing  students multiple ways to respond or demonstrate content
  •  Ensuring that students are motivated through multiple means of engagement.

By designing learning environments that recognize the challenge of individual differences, the learning environment becomes better for everyone.
