To address the remarkable variability among students in today’s diverse learning environments, educators are increasingly turning to Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL offers a framework for guiding the design of learning opportunities that are inclusive and challenging for all learners.
Universal Design for Learning: Explore helps participants deepen their understanding of UDL and its use as a development tool while learning how to design rich learning experiences that benefit all students in their classrooms.

However, participants may space their participation across time as best fits their needs and availability.
