About the Book

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a practical, research-based framework that enables all educators to respond to individual learning differences through the design of inclusive goals, methods, materials, assessments, and environments.

Universal Design for Learning; Principles, Framework, and Practice – an update of Anne Meyer and David Rose’s foundational text, Universal Design for Learning: Theory & Practice (2014) – provides an accessible introduction to the scientific foundations of the framework and the many ways UDL can help shape inclusive learning design.

New insights into accessible materials, universally designed learning environments, the critical role of context, and strategies for implementation are featured. Case stories and reflections reveal the many ways UDL plays out in K-12 settings, postsecondary environments, career preparation programs, and more.

Universal Design for Learning; Principles, Framework, and Practice begins shipping mid-July 2024 in paperback ($38, 204 pages, ISBN: 9781943085255) and EPUB ($38 ISBN: 9781943085033).
