Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing instruction that meets the needs of every learner. This book provides an overview of UDL, showing how to offer flexibility in methods of presentation, student participation and expression to support high achievement for all students, including those with disabilities or limited English proficiency.

The book:

  • Offers three modes of entry to allow educators to “start where they are” in their understanding of UDL and how it applies to their areas of instruction.
  • Shows educators how to enhance and transform their instructional practices by applying a UDL lens to analyze and redesign lessons.
  • Illustrates how to design accessible materials and use technology to provide more options for learners.
  • Highlights how UDL is foundational to inquiry-based, project-based and constructivist hands-on learning.

 

This book shows K-12 educators how to incorporate UDL in their instructional design and engage in continuous professional growth. The book will also appeal to those in coaching positions and to administrators seeking to support their staff.
