  • 4. Universal Design for LearningMul%ple  means:  -­‐to  tap  into  background  knowledge,  to  ac%vate   prior  knowledge,  to  increase  engagement  and   mo%va%on  -­‐to  acquire  the  informa%on  and  knowledge  to   process  new  ideas  and  informa%on  -­‐to  express  what  they  know.                        Rose  &  Meyer,  2002
