Universal Design for Learning
The Universal design of instruction can be defined as the design of instruction to be usable by all students, without the need for adaptation or specialized design (Burghstaler, 2005). As noted in Burghstahler's work, Universal design principles can be applied to the "overall design of instruction as well as to specific instructional materials, facilities, and strategies such as curricula, lectures, classroom discussions, group work, handouts, Web-based instruction, labs, field work, and demonstrations. Universally designed curriculum provides students with a wide range of abilities, disabilities, ethnic backgrounds, language skills, and learning styles multiple means of representation, expression, and engagement."
