Universal Design for Learning

“Universal Design for Learning (UDL): A framework that guides the design of courses and learning environments to appeal to the largest number of learners.” (La, Dyjur, & Bair, 2018) 

 

Principles of UDL

1. Multiple Means of Engagement

Various opportunities for student involvement in the class

2. Multiple Means of Representation​

Different ways in which to access the material and content

3. Multiple Means of Action and Expression

Students have the opportunity to show what they learned in different ways
