Universal Design in Learning refers to a set of principles for adjusting curriculum such that a broader set of learners can access academic material and express what they have learned. It was developed and is advocated as a means to provide educational access to students with various learning needs. The three tenets of UDL include: providing multiple means of representation, allowing multiple means of expression, and creating opportunities multiple means of engagement. In “Accessible by design: Applying UDL principles in a first year undergraduate course,” Kumar and Wideman describe the process of incorporating UDL principles in a first year, health sciences course. The case study provides a rich example of how one course incorporated the principles and documents the positive results. One particularly strong outcome was that students felt more in control of their learning, a desirable meta cognitive outcome for all students.
