Inclusive teaching strives to ensure that all students feel supported as they learn. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based framework that promotes equitable opportunities to learn for all people. By removing barriers from the learning process, the needs of diverse learners can be met. UDL guidelines encourage instructors to provide their students with multiple means of Representation, Action & Expression, and Engagement. These guidelines benefit all students by providing a level of flexibility in interacting with course content, activities, and assessments. One component of reducing student barriers is creating accessible course content. This could include texts, videos, images or other content that is available to students through Blackboard, UC's Learning Management System.
