Universal Design for Learning: Creating a Learning Environment that Challenges and Engages All Students

Many educators and curriculum designers are familiar with Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which has grown in popularity in recent years. However, the means of incorporating and utilizing this educational framework may remain unclear. Universal Design for Learning: Creating a Learning Environment that Challenges and Engages All Students, created by the IRIS Center at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College, is an interactive educational module about UDL that examines its three principles - representation, action and expression, and engagement - and discusses how to apply these principles to curricula. Structured in five stages, the module describes a series of classroom conundrums and asks participants to use UDL principles to solve them. This module provides a handy review for those who are familiar with UDL and an immersive educational experience for those who are new to the framework. It also includes an outline, so visitors can review the overall content and structure without committing to the approximate 2.5 hours necessary to complete the entire module. Additionally, the IRIS Center provides tips for navigating the module, supplemental and supporting information, and background on the adult learning theory around which the module is based, all of which can be found in the Related to this Module section.
