Inclusive Education

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) + Universal Design for Instruction (UDI) for Inclusive Education.


What are they?

The concept adapted from Universal Design (UD) makes design accessible for everybody in the society.


UDL + UDI:

To make EDUCATION accessible for everybody including disadvantaged groups such as the B40 and Students with Disabilities (SWDs) and to produce flexible learning environments that reduce learning barriers and support the needs of all learners (Morra and Reynolds, 2006).

UDL is Application of Universal Design in Curriculum.

UDI is Application of Universal Design in Learning and Facilitating (L&F).

3 UDL Principles for Distance Learning Application


Multi Means of Representation

  • Give learners various ways of acquiring information and knowledge.

  • Acknowledge differences of:

    • Abilities (blind, partially blind, deaf & hard of hearing etc.).

    • Location (urban, suburban and rural areas - poor internet connection).

    • Educational background.

    • Eg. SWDs friendly learning materials, PDF, podcast and using low technology platforms such as email, WhatsApp and Telegram.


Multiple Means of Engagement

  • Tap into learners' interests, offer appropriate challenges, and increase motivation based on their abilities and backgrounds.


Multiple Means of Expression

  • Provide learners with alternatives means for demonstrating what they know based on their abilities, backgrounds and locations.


UDL & UDI Key Implementation

FLEXIBILITY, REASONABLE ADJUSTMENT, and KNOW our learners.
