About UDL-Universe

Originally developed as a project through the U.S. Department of Education, UDL-Universe (UDL-U) supports postsecondary faculty and staff by providing resources and examples to improve postsecondary education for all students, including those with disabilities. UDL-U is designed to be useful for individual inquiries related to small UDL topics, issues, or problems, as well as scalable to larger faculty development efforts (e.g., Faculty Learning Communities). UDL-U frames course redesign as a three-tier professional development process:

  1. Application of UDL principles to enhance teaching and learning
  2. Utilization of accessible instructional media and practices
  3. Awareness of assistive technology enablers and barriers

UDL-U Faculty Development Curricula

The following guides support various levels of UDL professional development and course redesign. Each guide offers numerous resources including: campus promotional materials, UDL session planners, UDL curricula, UDL course implementation exemplars, and evaluation instruments. These resources have been successfully utilized by numerous postsecondary institutions in support of enhanced teaching and learning, for all students.

Throughout UDL-U, you will find content boxes that will provide faculty developers with additional strategies and resources for leading the implementation of UDL at your institution.  These boxes are identified by an orange colored header, as well as the title "Faculty Developer Tips."

  • Two-hour UDL Workshop Guide
    This guide is designed to support the implementation of a two-hour postsecondary UDL workshop. The presentation is thorough but the length does not allow for deep discussion or on-site course redesign effort.
  • Two-day UDL Institute Guide
    This guide is designed to support a one or two-day institute on UDL at the postsecondary level. Participants will receive an in-depth UDL experience, including intermittent time for discussion and beginning UDL course changes.
