Leading thinkers, researchers, and education practitioners discuss learning and human variability via video, audio, and the written word. This is the first section in what will become the multiple media Universal Design for Learning: A Journal of Theory, Research, and Practice. Read more at Conversations in Multiple Media.
Learners are highly variable, but that variation is not chaotic. Learners share common, predictable patterns of variability that are very useful to consider when designing educational environments.

CAST has launched a new web site, UDL On Campus, offering resources geared toward multiple stakeholders in postsecondary institutions to help them use the UDL principles to address learner variability in order to improve learning opportunities, retention, and outcomes.
A team at CAST is exploring how educators know whether or not UDL is being successfully applied in the classroom, and we are seeking your perspectives. When you visit a classroom, what do you look for? Please join the conversation by sharing your thoughts on UDL Connect.
The new CAST Professional Learning site offers a variety of professional learning opportunities and free resources that enable educators to deepen their knowledge and gain the practical skills that they need to apply UDL to practice. To learn more, visit www.castpl.org.
