Universal Design for Learning: Overview

Digital Badge

In this course, you will get a basic overview of the UDL framework, including its structure, curricular components, and the research behind it. You will understand the alignment between the three brain networks for learning and the three UDL guiding principles.

This course is the first of five modules in which you will explore a teacher’s journey through several days of professional learning and self-reflection.

This course was developed by the Texas Education Agency in collaboration with CAST. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Professional Development Series consists of five online courses, developed, and intended to be completed in sequential order. It is recommended that you begin the series with Course 1, which provides a basic overview of UDL. Course 2 provides you with an in-depth understanding of the UDL framework. Courses 3–5 dive into each of the UDL principles and checkpoints.
