Universal Design for Learning

Universal Design (UDL) offers a set of guidelines that assist instructors in creating curricula that give all students a chance to succeed. UDL offers students a degree of flexibility in how they access material, how they engage and interact with the material, and how they demonstrate learning mastery. The primary thought behind UDL is providing all students with equal opportunities to learn.
