I just came across this PDF document on the guidelines of universal design learning and wanted to share with you. For those of you not yet familiar with what Universal Design for Learning (UDL) mean and how you can benefit from it to improve your teaching practice, please refer to this post " Universal Design for Learning Explained for Teachers".

Here is a short definition of UDL:

Universal Design Learning is a framework for learning that includes all students. Being grounded in socio-cultural theory, UDL views learning environments and social interactions as being key elements in development and learning. In UDL students are allowed to express their learning in a variety of ways. The key principles driving UDL include flexibility, simple and intuitive instruction, multiple means of presentation, success oriented curriculum, appropriate level of student effort, and appropriate environment for learning.
