Making Connections: UDL Meets Student-Centered Learning Principles

Student-centered learning approaches are drawn from the mind/brain sciences, learning theory, and research on youth development. They are essential to students’ full engagement in achieving deeper learning outcomes. The four principles of student-centered learning approaches – personalized, competency-based, taking place anytime or anywhere, and student owned – are well aligned with universal design learning. JFF’s Students at the Center invites UDL-IRN Summit participants to a structured networking conversation about how these two overlapping field efforts can work together to create effective learning environments that engage every student - regardless of skill or economic level - and prepare them for college, career, and civic success.

JFF is a national nonprofit that drives change in American education and workforce systems to accelerate economic advancement for all. To learn more about our student-centered framework, see https://studentsatthecenterhub.org/interactive-framework/; and to review JFF’s work with student centered learning research, please visit: studentsatthecenterhub.org/resource/research-collaborative/.
