CAST: About Universal Design for Learning

Whatever educational environment we find ourselves in, remote, hybrid, or in-person, one thing is certain - utilizing the tenets of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can help make it better for all learners. According to CAST, the creators of the framework, the goal of UDL is "to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn." This portion of the CAST website provides a solid introduction and a guide to understanding the basics of UDL. At its heart, the overarching framework helps educators and others guide the design of their instructional goals, methods, assessments, and resources so they are personalized to meet the educational needs of all learners. Visitors to this page can use it as a jumping off point to explore the rich and diverse set of resources available, while also coming to understand the underlying goals of UDL through videos and data that highlight key components. The "UDL at a Glance" video is a particularly good starting point for anyone interested in exploring techniques that help minimize educational barriers and make learning more inclusive and transformative for everyone. CAST (previously featured in the 05-31-2019 Scout Report) is a nonprofit dedicated to educational research and development.
