Universal Design for Learning (UDL) & Accessibility

What is UDL ?

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) mirrors the universal design movement in architecture and product development, which began in the 1970s. Think of speakerphones, curb cuts, and close-captioned television-all universally designed to accommodate a wide variety of users, including those with disabilities. In terms of learning, UDL encourages faculty to consider three main principles: how they Represent their course content, how they Engage students in the learning process and how they offer students varied way to Express what they have learned. UDL allows faculty to consider these principles to the benefit of all students including students with disabilities.
