Universal Design for Learning

What is Universal Design Learning (UDL)?

Universal Design for Learning is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn.  UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone–not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.  – National Center on Universal Design Learning    (taken from:   http://www.udlcenter.org/aboutudl/whatisudl)
