Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

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.
