Universal Design for Learning

UDL is a scientifically valid framework for guiding educational practice that:​

  • Provides flexibility in the ways information is presented, in the ways students respond or demonstrate knowledge and skills, and in the ways students are engaged; and

  • Reduces barriers in instruction, provides appropriate accommodations, supports, and  challenges, and maintains high achievement expectations for all students, including students with disabilities and students who are limited English proficient.

From the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008

The CESA 11 UDL team works with partners like the Wisconsin DPI, the UDL Center, and CAST to provide regional training and in-district professional development to support the utilization of the UDL framework, which can be used with all students in all content areas to provide flexible, personalized, and inclusive learning environments in which all students can be successful.
