As a framework, UDL requires educators to think proactively about the variability of all learners. In consideration of the UDL Critical Elements, educators implementing UDL should use a backwards design instructional process that incorporates the following five steps.
1: Establish Clear Outcomes
2: Anticipate Learner Variability
3: Measurable Outcomes and Assessment Plan
4: Instructional Experience
5: Reflection and New Understanding
The Universal Design for Learning Implementation and Research Network (UDL-IRN) is a grassroots organization that supports the scaled implementation and research related to Universal Design for Learning. You can download the PDF of this UDL Instructional Process on this site.
