Universal Design 3.0 for Accessibility, Inclusion AND Equity


Accessibility, inclusion, & equity are interconnected elements to ensure that every learner is able to achieve their full potential. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Guidelines, first published by CAST in 2008, have been used by educators & instructional designers to create curricula, tools, & learning spaces that are accessible & inclusive. CAST is in the final stages of updating the UDL Guidelines through an equity lens to better address barriers due to bias & recognize identity as part of variability. Join us to learn about potential updates, share insights, & offer your feedback.
