Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has traditionally been thought of as a K-12 initiative. However, it can also be implemented at the postsecondary level. In this paper the teaching staff of T-560: Meeting the Challenge of Individual Differences, a course at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, discuss their experiences implementing UDL in their course. It also includes specific examples from their class.
