Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is about more than accessibility or the notion of making environments accessible for learners with disabilities. It gets at the heart of design – whether it’s design of a building, design of learning materials, design of a classroom environment, or design of a system. UDL is about the decisions we make in the design and development of learning systems, materials, and environments and whether those decisions unnecessarily constrain learners.
Universal Design is a way of thinking about the individuals who inhabit the spaces and places we build. It is a way of thinking about the inherent diversity of any given group of learners and applying a set of principles that will maximize access to learning – for all ages, modalities, life styles and life structures.
