Universal Design for Learning

Informed by the field of neuroscience, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach to teaching that addresses the diverse learning needs of all students.

Some individuals may learn best by engaging in one or more types of activities including listening, writing, drawing, reading, experimenting, building, discussing, designing, observing, or enacting. The goal of a UDL-based curriculum is to provide students with a variety of options so they can each learn in the way that's most effective for them.

For in-depth information about the theory and practice of UDL, visit the websites below or check the CTL calendar of events for UDL-related programing.
