Ideas re: UDL

  • A relatively new initiative in education

  • Tremendous potential to impact learning

  • Implementation is in the early stages

  • Research data is emerging and growing

  • High interest in Postsecondary implementation of UDL

    • Retention

    • Diversity

    • Legislation


The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008

  • Universal Design for Learning (UDL) means a scientifically valid framework for guiding educational practice that — (A) provides flexibility in the ways information is presented, in the ways students respond or demonstrate knowledge and skills, and in the ways students are engaged; and (B) reduces barriers in instruction, provides appropriate accommodations, supports, and challenges, and maintains high achievement expectations for all students, including students with disabilities and students who are limited English proficient. [HEOA, P.L. 110-315, §103(a)(24)].
