Abstract

By using principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) within online learning environments, teacher education faculty have an opportunity to break down barriers and create purposeful course content that will benefit all learners. The application of UDL helps teacher education faculty recruit learner interest, sustain learner efforts, and provide learners with options to apply knowledge and demonstrate understanding. Examples and strategies for using UDL in online learning environments are provided.
