National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) has created a set of instructional resources for educators and parents including a crosswalk aligning the Common Core State Standards, college and career readiness/alternate achievement standards, and UDL. For more information, review the following document (PDF): UDL and NCSC Alternative Assessment and Instructional Resources.
The 2013 fact sheet, Universal Design for Learning: Strategies Principals Can Employ in Their Schools, provides an overview of the principles of UDL and outlines how the framework makes course instruction, materials, and content accessible and engaging for students with all learning styles.
UDL Task Force takes action—To promote UDL in federal policy, the National UDL Task Force recently submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Education and Congress. The Task Force called on the Department to include UDL as a 2015 funding priority. Read the letter to the Department. The Task Force also asked Congress to remove the definition for universal design from the Higher Education Act (HEA) because its definition appears in the Assistive Technology Act. Including universal design in the section of the HEA that defines UDL confuses rather than clarifies understanding of UDL. Read the letter to Congress.
