This module contains three resources for getting started with CAST's Universal Design for Learning framework. We suggest moving through the resources in order: 

  • Introduction to the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines
  • UDL Mapping Activity
  • Applying UDL to Existing Materials

These activities can be completed independently but there is great benefit to sharing and discussing your responses, mappings, and ideas with others.

    While you can work through these resources independently, I highly recommend working through the activities with a partner or group. The work of contextualizing UDL to a discipline is not trivial and benefits greatly from conversation. If you find yourself working through them alone, let me know! I'd love to hear from you and talk through your ideas!
