Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing and delivering instruction that is flexible, adaptable, and inclusive for all learners
One of the key tenets of inclusive education is the idea of universal design for learning (UDL).
UDL is an instructional approach that seeks to provide multiple means of representation, expression, and engagement, so that all students can access and participate in the learning process. This might involve providing alternative formats for presenting information, such as videos, audio recordings, or graphic organizers; allowing for multiple means of expression, such as written responses, oral presentations, or visual projects; and providing a variety of opportunities for engagement, such as group work, independent study, or hands-on activities.
