Universal design

  1. 1. Universal Design for Learning<br />Created by – Jennifer Brock<br />
  2. 2. What is UDL?<br /> “Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing curricula that enable all individuals to gain knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for learning. UDL provides rich supports for learning and reduces barriers to the curriculum while maintaining high achievement standards for all.”<br />Massachusetts Department of Education. What is Universal Design for Learning. Retrieved September 21, 2009 From http://www.cast.org/research/udl/index.html<br />
  3. 3. Where did UDL originate?<br />Ron Mace, an architect during the 1990’s, created the idea that products and the environment should be made so that all people have easy access and find no barriers when working in any environment.<br />“Universal design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.” Ron Mace<br />Examples – Wheelchair Ramp and Braille on Elevators<br />Colorado State University. Universal Design for Learning. [Retrieved] October 2, 2010 [From] http://accessproject.colostate.edu/udl/documents/philosophy.cfm<br />
