Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for addressing the educational needs of diverse and variable learners in many settings across many stages of life. It is a means to eradicate persistent inequities in education—and it is an even more powerful tool when used as a lens for shaping educational systems, designs, and initiatives.

This year’s Annual Symposium invites experts across a variety of fields to explore more deeply the ways in which UDL can be used as a lens to see the work of teaching and learning. We hope to both highlight the promising ways UDL has already made great practices even better and to co-create a vision for making UDL ubiquitous as a lens for our collective work of designing learning without limits.

Conference Goals

By engaging in virtual and in-person sessions that encourage innovative ideas, systemic thinking, and application of theory to practice, participants will:

  • Explore the unique ways UDL can enhance and improve the most cutting-edge practices in education today.
  • Be inspired to use UDL as a framework for designing and pulling together multiple initiatives across a school, university, or workplace.
  • Consider the crosswalks of UDL and other promising educational frameworks.
  • Imagine innovative policies and practices that complement and advance the goals of UDL.
  • Challenge their own assumptions about teaching, instruction, and learning.


The in-person option for this year's Symposium will be held at the The Westin Denver Downtown. We have secured a room block for specifically for Symposium participants. If you are interested in booking a room at a discount rate, please be sure to book your room using the booking website before July 7, 2023.
