Advances in Neuroscience and education research revealed that learning is as unique to individuals as their fingerprints or DNA , so how can teachers design a personalized learning experience for diverse students needs , abilities and intelligences?

The UDL ( Universal Design for learning) could be one of the framework that can help teachers in that regard.

So What is UDL?

UDL is a framework for instruction organized around 3 principles based on the learning sciences . These principles guide the design and development of curriculum that is effective and inclusive for all learners ( Rose & Gravel,2010).

The UDL principles map onto 3 groups of brain networks : recognition , starategic and affective networks

Universal Design For Learning Principles

Providing multiple means of representations: by offering ways of customizing the display of information, alternatives for auditory and visual information , clarifying language and symbols , illustration through different media

Providing multiple means of action and expressions: by using multiple media of communication, multiple tools for construction and composition, access to assistance for different technologies

Providing multiple means of engagement: by fostering collaboration and communities, developing self assessment and reflection

These principles require flexibility , agility and a student- centered approach that care about students and their unique and individual needs
