Universal Design for Learning at UVM Project
Universal Design is a set of principles promoting the idea that an environment should be accessible and understandable to the most amount of people in the simplest ways possible. Planning for everyone promotes learning for everyone. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for teaching and learning that addresses the widest possible variety of learning needs, styles, and preferences. From 2008-2011, CDCI and UVM received $1million in federal funding to adapt the UDL principles to a higher education framework. Learn more about UDL@UVM.
