Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework and set of guidelines that increases access to and removes barriers for learning. UDL practices include multiple ways to motivate (engage) students, present (represent) content, and offer a range of ways for students to demonstrate their learning (action/expression). While technology use is not a required component of UDL, it is often used to expand ways to implement UDL. We will explain how UDL course design can be implemented in no-tech, low-tech, and high-tech ways. We will provide a UDL and technology guide with activity and tool examples, explain and demonstrate select examples, and consider challenges in implementing UDL and technology, such as resources and accessibility standards.
