About the pathway

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based framework that helps educators plan learning to meet the diverse needs of all learners. It is designed to help create more flexible and inclusive teaching and learning environments where all learners have equal opportunities to learn. The purpose of this UDL Educator Pathway is to support educators in putting UDL into practice.

Topics covered

The UDL Educator Pathway currently features three collections:

  • Collection 1 looks at what UDL is, why we need it and how to get started with UDL.
  • Collection 2 provides an overview of the three principles of UDL, Engagement, Representation and Action & Expression, and explores how these principles can be applied to create an inclusive learning environment.
  • Collection 3 explains that putting UDL into practice is a journey, which can be taken step-by-step. It also includes a wealth of ideas for further learning opportunities.
