What is UDL?

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. UDL guides the creation of learning outcomes, resources and assessments that work for everyone. This approach is underpinned by research in the field of neuroscience and is designed to improve the learning experience and outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities, students from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, mature students and international students.

UNSW Teaching Gateway

The gateway now includes tips and advice on how to put UDL into practice, starting with small changes that maximise inclusivity. There is information on UDL-friendly lesson planning and assessment design, plus step-by-step actions for inclusive online teaching. These new resources have been compiled by UNSW Disability Champion Dr Alanya Drummond and the Disability Champion Working Group (EDI), in collaboration with Professor Terry Cumming (Academic Lead Education, Disability Innovation Institute) and the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education and Student Experience).
