In order for educators to prepare students to be successful in life, there must be a focus on providing an educational experience that motivates and inspires students to become productive members of society. Two separate learning philosophies, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) gives educators the tools to make curriculum more accessible and engaging, while Project Based Learning (PBL) provides a format that allows students to dive into authentic, real world problems and work together to present solutions. One of the most crucial and timely topics educators face is introducing culturally responsive lessons to introduce and educate students on people from diverse backgrounds; people who likely live in their own community. By applying the principles of UDL to a PBL project, students would have the ability to create without barriers, and focus on challenges of diversity in their own communities. By using these two philosophies in conjunction with each other, all students would not only have access to an engaging and enriching experience, but also be able to witness the positive outcomes of collaboration as well as the rewards of being a contributing member of their community and society.
