Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
UDL is a set of principles that helps teachers to adapt the classroom/learning environment to meet the needs of ALL leaeners. UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.

Learning Strategies are ways to help students process new information and retain it. Strategies help students to be more intentional and active in their learning.
