What Is Universal Design?

According to CAST.org, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) “guides the design of instructional goals, assessments, methods, and material that can be customized and adjusted to meet individual needs.” Employing Universal Design principles and practices simply means designing a course and its materials to be all-inclusive and therefore Accessible, or ADA compliant.

Why at RWU?

One key goal of RWU's strategic plan is Preparing our Learners. We have consistently focused on our students and this goal reflects that commitment. The concept of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach to pedagogy that will allow us to engage all our students and provide them with opportunities to succeed, regardless of background and previous educational experiences. It also connects to our Equity Action Plan’s focus area of Student Access, Success and Equity.
