Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an educational framework based on research in the learning sciences, including cognitive neuroscience, that guides the development of flexible learning environments and learning spaces that can accommodate individual learning differences.
UDL allows for equal access. The goal of UDL is to use various teaching methods which would serve as barriers to learning. The Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) external link developed the UDL framework. To learn how UDL benefits students in higher education, please see how CAST helps faculty external link, administrators and others examine learning goals, materials, technologies, teaching methods and assessments which make up a curriculum.
