This article provides an overview of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), an educational strategy designed to provide curricular access to a wide diversity of children, including children with disabilities. UDL builds on principles originally conceptualized in accessible architecture and focuses on the various ways that curriculum can be presented, engaged with, and responded to by children. Like many educational strategies, UDL has “traveled” from its origins in the United States. This article traces how UDL has traveled through the lens of policy borrowing and provides two national case examples of its implementation in international settings.
