Complete 12 of 16 Sessions for Certificate 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing educational environments that enable all learners to gain knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for learning. This is accomplished by simultaneously reducing barriers to the curriculum and providing rich supports for learning. Employing UD principles in everything we do makes a more accessible world for all of us. It minimizes the need to alter it for anyone. Explore Universal Design in Higher Education: Promising Practices for more information about how Universal Design has been put into practice.
