UDL: A framework for good teaching, a model for student success
Provost's Course Redesign Competition, 2011
Universal Design for Learning is a three-part model for good teaching, designed to promote inclusive classroom instruction and accessible course materials. Thus, it's about both teaching and technology. The case for UDL begins by acknowledging the diversity evident in today's classrooms, including students of different ages and life experiences, genders, ethnicities, language backgrounds, and learning styles. Disabilities—both apparent and non-apparent—are another facet of student diversity. So, too, is the wide range of technologies used by instructors and students.
