What is it?
Universal Instructional Design (UID) is a very similar to UDL in that it is a set of principles aimed at creating more inclusive and accessible learning environments. UID is based on seven principles.
The Seven Principles of UID describe how instructional materials and activities should:
- be accessible and fair,
- be flexible,
- be straightforward and consistent and
- be explicit,
and how the learning environment should:
- be supportive,
- minimize unnecessary physical effort, and
- accommodate students and multiple teaching methods.
