Thanks for joining us! These web pages will introduce you to the practice of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a teaching and learning framework designed to help break down structural barriers in traditional educational practice and promote greater equity and inclusion for a diversity of learners. 

Take out last section (encircled in red) and add this statement: UDL plays a crucial role in our practice at the Teaching and Learning Exchange (TLX), serving as a cornerstone framework that guides us in embodying our core values. It also serves as a significant instrument for achieving the objectives outlined in the 2024-2030 Academic Plan, as well as the strategic vision laid out in A Roadmap to the Future: Vision 2030, Strategy 2026.

About UDL

UDL is a framework for teaching and learning, created by CAST. It is based on the principles of Universal Design in architecture, which seek to ensure that built environments can be used to the greatest extent possible by as many people as possible. Just like Universal Design asserts that people with a variety of different access needs can and should fully participate in public space, UDL assumes that learners who are traditionally pushed out of classroom environments – including but not limited to learners with disabilities – are valuable members of a learning community who deserve to be supported.
