    • Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a curriculum designed approach to increase flexibility in teaching and decrease the barriers that frequently limit student access to materials and learning in classrooms
    • Principles of the Universal Design for Learning Framework

      Principle 1:
      To support recognition learning, provide multiple, flexible methods of presentation

      Principle 2:
      To support strategic learning, provide multiple, flexible methods of expression and apprenticeship.


      Principle 3:
      To support affective learning, provide multiple, flexible options for engagement.


      • Network-Appropriate Teaching Methods

        To support diverse recognition networks:
        • Provide multiple examples
        • Highlight critical features
        • Provide multiple media and formats
        • Support background context

        To support diverse strategic networks:
        • Provide flexible models of skilled performance
        • Provide opportunities to practice with supports
        • Provide ongoing, relevant feedback
        • Offer flexible opportunities for demonstrating skill

        To support diverse affective networks:
        • Offer choices of context and tools
        • Offer adjustable levels of challenge
        • Offer choices of learning context
        • Offer choices of rewards
    • UDL Teaching Method
    • Visit the CAST web site. The CAST web site devotes a large section to Universal Design for Learning. Here visitors will find an articulation of UDL, discussions of its core concepts, descriptions of UDL research projects, a listing of tools and resources that support UDL, and ideas and examples for implementing UDL.
    • Inventory and build technology support. Technology, in particular digital media, makes UDL implementation practical and achievable in a diverse classroom. Digital materials make it possible for the same material to be flexibly presented and accessedeven adapted on a student-to-student basis.
    • (a) Set Goals, (b) Analyze Status, (c) Apply UDL, and (d) Teach the UDL Lesson.
