Universal design for learning

Universal Design for Learning is a system created to ensure students with learning differences can thrive in the same educational environment. Universal Design for Learning, or UDL for short, is built around three principles: engagement (utilizing learner interests and motivations), representation (offering content in various formats), and action and expression (providing learners with diverse expression outlets).

Universal Design for Learning refers to a framework established to minimize physical and mental barriers to learning, affording all students equal opportunity to flourish. With Universal Design for Learning, information is presented in flexible ways, pertaining to lectures, discussions, demonstrations, resources and more. Outside of academia, automatic doors and closed captioning are examples of how Universal Design for Learning has impacted everyday life.
