Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a design framework for creating learning experiences that
are equitable, flexible, and accessible to all learners. UDL is built upon three principles: providing
multiple means of engagement, representation, and action and expression to meet the needs
of all learners. UDL principles inform implementation guidelines that promote high level learning
goals of self-regulation, comprehension, and executive function; strategies to build these areas
of expertise; and methods to remove unnecessary barriers to learning. Through this lens, there
are no “right” types of assessments, methods, or materials; instead, design focus should be on
having multiple options for diverse learners.
