Register here or Ask information


Nowadays educators in every school support students with diverse learning needs. It can be challenging to craft learning opportunities that meet the needs of such a wide variety of learners. Towards this direction, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) aims to ensure all students have full access to the educational environment, regardless of their needs and abilities. In terms of instructional design, Differentiation is a strategy that addresses each student’s individual levels of readiness, interest, and learning profiles.

The course has been tailored for teachers who seek to learn more about the approach of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and the strategy of Differentiation in order to design an accessible educational framework that addresses the diverse needs of all students (e.g. students with special needs, migrants) and ensures their educational and social inclusion.
