Universal Design for Learning

What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)?

"Universal Design for Learning is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn" (from the National Center on Universal Design for Learning website).

Why should I consider UDL for my class?

By following the principles of UDL, you'll be making your class more accessible for ALL of your students. Making the information and materials you cover available in a variety of formats, for instance, supports not just those students with learning or intellectual disabilities, but also those who simply learn in different ways.

How much work is involved in making my class more accessible?

Adopting UDL practices can be as simple as changing the font on your presentations and handouts--just a few seconds! If you're eager to do more, there are more involved steps you can take, such as enhancing lectures, class interactions and activities, or assignments.
