Universal Design for Learning (UDL) applies a philosophy of accessibility to the classroom, promoting successful learning for all students. UDL aims to reduce barriers that students may face due to diverse learning styles, abilities, and interests. On Thursday, November 11, Dr. Caitlin Solone, education advocate, teacher educator, and faculty at UCLA, broke down what UDL looks like in practice and how we can advocate for it.

UDL isn't a manual or checklist; as Dr. Solone explains, it's a set of principles to be used by teachers. Listen to this clip for a brief rundown of the goal of UDL and how it makes a difference for students.
UDL is about creating a learning environment where students of all abilities and learning styles can thrive. In this clip, Dr. Solone gives examples and outlines the importance of inclusive classrooms.
