Recent years have seen a greater focus on equity and diversity in higher and health professions' education. As part of this conversation, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has emerged as a promising and practical approach to teaching and learning which helps to provide students with equal opportunities to succeed.

UDL principles can be used to create learning environments that suit a wide variety of learners, offering flexibility in the ways in which students can access and engage with resources. In this month's Fast Facts, we provide an overview of UDL, explore the organisation of the UDL framework, and consider how we might apply UDL to curriculum planning.
