Research Articles Database

Researchers have examined how UDL can create flexible and engaging environments, support inclusion, address learner variability and be applied to various tools and technology-based environments. The research articles database allows you to search for articles on UDL research.

UDL Reporting Criteria

The UDL Reporting Criteria are a tool that can be used by researchers and practitioners to design UDL based studies and report on them.  The tool provides a set of criteria for what to consider when designing and reporting on a UDL-based practice or intervention.
