Universal Design for Learning
In the 1990s, Anne Meyer, David Rose, and their colleagues at CAST introduced universal design for learning (UDL), a framework to improve teaching and learning. Universal Design for Learning: Theory & Practice includes: • New insights from research on learner differences and how human variability plays out in learning environments • Research-based discussions of what it means to become expert at learning • First-hand accounts and exemplars of how to implement UDL at all levels and across subjects using the UDL Guidelines • "Dig Deeper" segments that enrich the main content • Dozens of original illustrations and access to videos and other online features at http://udltheorypractice.cast.org • Opportunities to participate in a UDL community
