Universal Design for Learning Framework

Universal Design for Learning Framework was created to encourage educators to design learning activities to optimize learning for all students. Rather than create lessons and add accommodations for learners with different needs, the Universal Design for Learning encourages beginning lesson design with the goal of reaching all ability levels and learning styles.

The framework (based on over 1,000 research studies) encourages lessons that include multiple means of engaging students, multiple ways of representing information, and multiple ways for students to demonstrate mastery. In this session participants will explore the UDL framework, and gain strategies for making lessons that optimize learning for all students.
