Research, Design, & Development

As part of our mission to bust all barriers to learning, CAST researches, designs, and develops innovative solutions to make education more inclusive and effective. We do so by applying the principles of Universal Design for Learning, a framework rooted in the learning sciences. CAST routinely partners with leading research organizations, institutions of higher education, corporations, and foundations to pursue this work.
