The Universal Design for Learning Credentialing & Certification Initiative (UDL-CCI)
CAST and the UDL Implementation & Research Network are leading a field-building initiative to stimulate, support, and sustain best practices in UDL education program design, product development, and classroom instruction to meet the growing global demand for UDL as a design framework that recognizes variability among all learners. This multi-year initiative will result in an ecosystem of UDL professional credentials and certification opportunities supported with learning resources and a global online community, available on the Learning Designed platform.
Learning Designed is built to support, celebrate, and grow with educators throughout their careers — and is poised to change the way education organizations design, distribute, and promote their work. This new education power tool for a changing world will have the capacity to:
- Recognize and validate best UDL practices in program design, product development, and classroom instruction
- Include personalized content delivery, stackable micro-credentials and assessments
- Promote continued engagement for both individual and organizational memberships
- Provide a transparent, voluntary, and verifiable process for consumers to pursue their credentials and certifications and demonstrate their competence and expertise to the market
2016 – present
