A Blogger's Insight:
Review of www.cast.org/udl/index.html
What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? Throughout the years, educators and scholars have debated the meaning of universal design of learning. Personally, UDL is about making the curriculum and materials accessible, flexible while providing alternative routes and options for all learners' success, in addition to, meeting individual goals of becoming a life-long learner.
According to, www.cast.org/udl/index.html, they define UDL as a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. Short and simple, right? This site is wonderful to break down the complexity of UDL and why is it necessary. It provides a visual representation of UDL for those visual learners while providing concrete guidelines pertaining to each aspect of universal design of learning. Don't take my insight for it, check it out and become part of the debate. How do you define UDL?
