Thus, it was a comprehensive representation of the UDL framework where educators, leaders and students strive to achieve their respective learning outcomes in the academic environment.

The depth and power of the UDL model from the inclusion and empowerment perspectives was discussed.

What is the role of the educator? A diverse role was illustrated and examined using the principles of UDL to remove barriers and emphasise inclusion.

The experts outlined the challenges for the educator:

How to design the learning space, training students, assisting students break barriers and include their voice in the design of learning environment.

They demonstrated strategies to assist the educational community, including reflection and feedback on the learning process.

The importance of giving a voice to teachers, students, parents and administration sections within the educational structure.
