What is UDL: Seeing the Full Tapestry

The UDL Approach logo from Loui Lord Nelson, Ph.D.

Across the world, educators and leaders are choosing to adopt Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to create learning experiences that empower all learners.

Using the analogy of a tapestry, this infographic from The UDL Approach introduces what drives the framework, what aligns with the framework, and the organization of the UDL Guidelines.
