Universal Design for Learning (UDL)


Principles and best practices for ensuring that all activities, assignments, outcomes, and instructional methods are designed in such a way that all students have multiple ways to interact with the content and be assessed on their learning. The three key principles underpinning UDL are multiple means of representation (information is presented in multiple ways), multiple means of expression (students are provided with a variety of opportunities and ways to demonstrate their learning), and multiple means of engagement (there are multiple ways for students to interact with course content and with one another).
