Overview of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

19 July 2017

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is “a blueprint for creating flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments that accommodate learner differences…it is meant to underscore the need for multiple approaches to meet the needs of diverse learners” (Center for Applied Special Technology, n.d.) Planning with UDL does not assume a one-size-fits-all approach; instead it takes into account the variability of all learners. UDL provides the opportunity for all students to access, participate in, and make progress in the general-education curriculum by reducing barriers to instruction. In this overview session, participants will begin to explore the principals of UDL: options for how information is presented, how students respond or demonstrate their knowledge and skills, and how students are engaged in learning.
