Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is the best way to teach all students effectively and break down barriers to learning—but how can busy teachers get started with UDL right now? Find the answers in the second edition of this bestselling, teacher-trusted primer, created by internationally recognized UDL expert Loui Lord Nelson.


Thoroughly updated to reflect new research and developments in the field of UDL, this book gives K–12 teachers a reader-friendly UDL introduction and a practical framework for implementation, with guidelines and checkpoints for designing effective, barrier-free lesson plans and learning environments. You’ll learn how to use the three core principles of UDL—Engagement, Representation, and Action & Expression—to present information in multiple ways and ensure access for all learners. Throughout the book, detailed examples, stories, illustrations, teacher reflections, and activities reinforce UDL principles and help you put them into practice in both virtual and in-person settings.


Written in first person, like a face-to-face talk with a passionate educator, this research-based book will guide you in designing equitable, inclusive, and culturally responsive learning environments that meet the needs of diverse learners. An essential UDL introduction for both preservice and inservice educators!

  • Key insights from the latest neuroscience research
  • Useful stories and practical tips from teachers implementing UDL
  • Technology bytes: timely tips and ideas on how to enhance online learning with UDL
  • Expert guidance on current topics, including culturally responsive teaching, urban education, and a focus on the expert learner
  • “Ponder this” prompts throughout the book to help readers consider new ideas and discover additional resources
  • End-of-chapter “check-ins” that help readers apply what they’ve learned

If you want to develop a deep understanding of how to create accessible, effective learning environments using the UDL framework, Design & Deliver is your anchor. Read it first.

Accomplishes what the title promises: It delivers user-friendly, research-based, practice-oriented information for educators to implement UDL principles and practices. In a global educational context in which personalization and self-determined learning are increasingly expectations for the education of all students, Design and Deliver should be in the hands of every educator and administrator.

Dr. Loui Lord Nelson, an audacious and profound writer, packs this book with real-life examples and analogies while modeling universal design for learning. This book snaps and crackles with ideas...and magically draws you into the profound belief that all students can become expert learners. Every administrator, teacher, leader, and parent wanting to support expert learners should read and share this book.

Dr. Nelson’s writing style [is] so apropos for teaching, modeling, and learning about UDL. This updated version has incorporated all the latest updates on UDL and reflects the current thinking of how we explore this for all lives in education.
