Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

UDL

With a foundational belief that all students can learn in an environment that supports their learning needs, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides a framework for proactively designing instruction that addresses the variability of  learners while providing the means to reduce or eliminate barriers to learning. Grounded in the neuroscience research on how individuals learn, UDL is a blueprint for creating instructional goals aligned to Ohio’s Learning Standards, selecting and designing materials, methods, and assessments that work for ALL learners, using flexible approaches that can be customized to meet  the needs of individual learners.

  • ODE has worked to connect UDL to the Learning Standards
  • UDL for early childhood
  • UDL and Transition
