About: 

The Universal Design for Learning conceptual framework makes classroom learning more accessible for all students, but is often lacking in general education teacher preparation programs. This paper describes the ongoing joint efforts of middle school and special education faculty to implement UDL throughout a four-year Middle Childhood program as part of a larger effort allowing teacher candidates to seek dual (special education and middle school) licensure. Additionally, UDL as taught in a science and assessment course are detailed. Finally, ongoing and future efforts of faculty implementing UDL within the program are described.
