Greensboro College has committed to become a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) institution. UDL is a comprehensive educational framework that removes barriers to student learning and academic success. The principles of UDL recognize that variance in learning ability and style among individuals is the norm and not the exception. Therefore, curriculum should be adaptable to individual learning differences rather than the other way around.
You probably have questions! That’s OK. We have answers.
Yes! Everyone has a unique learning style. It’s as unique as your fingerprint.
Yes! Our new teaching framework enables students to be self-sufficient. The college is responsible for imparting knowledge and facilitating the learning process for all learners.
Greensboro College is among a relatively small (but growing!) number of colleges and universities using UDL as a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn.
Universal Design for Learning does not remove academic challenges. UDL removes barriers to accessing course materials. UDL guides the design of instruction by customizing and adjusting teaching methods to meet individual learning needs. UDL is simply good teaching based on research on how humans learn.
