Universal Design for Learning is about creating learning options and environments that consider and cater for everyone from the outset. It's about:

  • avoiding time and energy spent retro fitting and building in a range of options and supports at the beginning
  • recognising and removing the invisible barriers that stop people from participating in a way that works for them,
  • proactively getting to know students and each other and then using that knowledge to create learning opportunities and environments,
  • welcoming diversity and seeing it as a starting point to expand thinking,
  • designing from the edges - planning from the diversest needs and offering a choice of options and support rather than opting for a single mythical middle pathway.
