UDL Spotlight

Educators around the world are applying key aspects of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in highly innovative ways. Developed in 2010, CAST featured examples of UDL features in teacher practice, in applications of technology, courses, tools and web sites to support teaching and learning. In each Spotlight, segments of the UDL Guidelines are highlighted that are met by any implementation.

UDL Spotlight aims to

  • Recognize and celebrate implementations of UDL features -whether or not they are called by the UDL name
  • Educate web visitors about UDL by making explicit connections between the featured work and the UDL Guidelines-Version 1.0
  • Stimulate conversation about what constitutes “best practices.
  • Foster new UDL-based relationships, partnerships, and innovations

Each featured Spotlight illustrates some of the CAST UDL Guidelines. Taken as a group, the Spotlights build a vision for a future of learning environments that are truly universal.
