Universal Design

Linn Benton Community College’s Center for Accessibility Resources (CFAR) defines Universal Design for Learning as a framework for teaching and learning that includes proactive planning of curricula which does not assume a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, UDL takes into account the diversity of all learners and structures the classroom to combat the barriers students face.
