Universal Design for Learning (UDL) creates inclusive pedagogy by encouraging a curriculum design tailored to address the needs of all students. By acknowledging that there is no average, UDL focuses on the needs of the individual and supports students through the variety of transitions that define their experience of higher education. UDL acknowledges the diversity in experience, culture and personality among learners and provides teachers in HEIs with the toolsto reach out to all students in the classroom.
