UDL: Universal Design for Learning (Educational Leadership article)

The theme of the April 2017 issue of Educational Leadership is Differences, Not Disabilities, and one of the articles by Salend and Whittaker is titled UDL: A Blueprint for Success. 

From page 60: “Just as architects create blueprints to design buildings that everyone can use, the UDL framework encourages teachers to be educational architects who build student success (Salend, 2016). Here, we describe a seven-step pedagogical model to guide educational architects in developing UDL instructional blueprints.”

The seven steps are:

  1. Understand Students’ Learning Differences
  2. Identify Educational Goals and Learning Objectives
  3. Examine Aspects of the Learning Environment
  4. Identify Barriers to Student Success
  5. Select UDL Solutions to Address the Barriers
  6. Ensure that UDL Solutions Are Well-Implemented
  7. Evaluate the Efficacy, Acceptability, and Fidelity of UDL Solutions
