Here is a definition of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) from the CAST website:
“Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn.” Learn more about the Universal Design for Learning framework from CAST.
And here is a definition of the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines from the CAST website:
“The UDL Guidelines are a tool used in the implementation of Universal Design for Learning. These guidelines offer a set of concrete suggestions that can be applied to any discipline or domain to ensure that all learners can access and participate in meaningful, challenging learning opportunities.” udlguidelines.cast.org
I am currently working on a project to develop an explicitly anti-oppressive UDL framework for use in the classroom, so please check back for more information about this project! In the meantime, please feel free to use the teacher resources found in the rest of the pages under the “Teacher Resources” tab!
