What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)?

UDL can be thought of as a methodology for designing a curriculum that includes a variety of different alternatives for both accessibility and appropriateness of content due to the varied nature of people and learning contexts. Issues to consider include learners' different backgrounds, learning styles, abilities, and disabilities.

The term "universal" "reflects an awareness of the unique nature of each learner and the need to accommodate differences, creating learning experiences that suit the learner and maximize his or her ability to progress" (CAST, accessed February 18, 2004)

What are the UDL principles?
