Spring Seminar: Universal Design for Learning—Designing Classrooms for All Learners

Published: January 10, 2019

“Universal Design for Learning (UDL) suggests that it’s not the students who need to adapt to fit the system, but rather that the system should be designed so that it can be made to fit each student’s learning needs. UDL presents an evidence-based framework that teachers can use to meet the needs of the variety of learners in their classroom.” – Jennifer Pusateri
