Universal Design for Learning

SF State students in class.


The CEETL Universal Design for Learning (UDL) online course focuses on strategies for developing coursework, choosing resources, and designing anti-racist programs that consider the wide variability of learners in higher education.

In this UDL online course, participants will explore these topics:

  • Identify the objectives and principles of UDL.
  • Explain how UDL may enhance inclusivity and anti-racist pedagogy.
  • Apply real-world practices for humanizing instruction and activities.
  • Apply UDL to course outcomes, presentation of material, student engagement, assignments, assessments and students’ articulation of learning.


This course is offered as an open resource.

Stipends for faculty completion of CEETL course offerings were made possible through one-time emergency federal funding (CARES and HEERF) for COVID-19. This funding source has now concluded as of 4/25/22. CEETL courses remain available as open resources for the campus community, though stipends for completion will no longer be awarded.
