What is Universal Design for Learning?

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for course development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. This includes providing flexibility in the ways information is presented (text, video, images, animation) and providing accommodations for individuals with disabilities.

The three principles of UDL are:

  • provide multiple means of representation,
  • provide multiple means of action and expression, and
  • provide multiple means of engagement.
