CAST Launches Three Updated UDL Credentials
Monday, July 31, 2023
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people. Though the UDL framework has been widely adopted across the globe, it can be a challenge to assess if individuals are truly implementing it. To help this, we're pleased to announce a new version of the UDL Credentials on Learning Designed. The updated UDL Credentials help stimulate, support, and sustain best practices in utilizing UDL through competency-based evaluations of people’s knowledge and skills. The Credentials support growth in inclusive practices in educational contexts and also provide baseline criteria for implementation.
The three updated credentials provide an opportunity for participants to gain feedback on their understanding, analysis, and application of UDL. Teachers, education leaders, and other professionals, including educational technology companies, can demonstrate their knowledge, application, and incorporation of UDL by earning a credential or product certification from CAST.
