Co-design of learning environments, with explicit accounting for the socio-historical underpinnings of educational inequities and disparities in America, has been missing in Universal Design for Learning (UDL) discourse and implementation. Accordingly, UDL has primarily accounted for the interactions among micro-level (individual) variables, while disregarding their dynamic interaction with macro-level (structural) variables. This discussion proposes an equity-based approach to co-designing UDL learning environments, which leverages innovative policy, programs, and practices across multiple fields of practice.
