Certificate in Universal Design: Technology Integration
Unique opportunity for professional development and career enhancement
Create learning environments in which all students thrive, regardless of their learning preferences and abilities, by earning a Certificate in Universal Design: Technology Integration.
The UD-TI Certificate program is designed for professionals and graduate students in the fields of education, technology and support services. Students in the program:
- Discover the dynamic role of assistive technology in creating accessible instruction within the context of Universal Design
- Create materials based on the principles of Universal Design that can be used immediately to enhance educational practices
- Acquire in-depth understanding of principles and applications of Universal Design in education
- Learn up-to-date information about neuro-developmental conditions that affect learning, such as dyslexia and other learning disabilities, ADHD, and ASD
Courses are taught using a combination of online instruction and real-time face-to-face learning via social platforms such as Skype.
In partnership with Marlboro College Graduate School, students enrolled in the Landmark College Certificate in Universal Design: Technology Integration program also have the option to apply to receive graduate level credits for their coursework.
A low-residency component (only one weekend on-site for the third course and one week for the Capstone course) together with a blended course format, make this an ideal option for busy educators and graduate students. The program culminates in a Capstone project that is individualized and designed collaboratively by the participant and instructor. With direct application to the participant’s current or future work, the Capstone project offers a unique opportunity for experiential learning from expert faculty at Landmark College, and from Landmark students, who know what it means to be non-traditional learners.
The program offers a variety of flexible options, including the opportunity to take selected courses for professional development, for credit, or as electives in other graduate programs.

A new understanding of the ways in which students learn and teachers guide the learning process is shaping education in the 21st century. It is students at the margins, particularly those who learn differently, who are informing contemporary pedagogical practices. At Landmark College, experienced faculty work closely with researchers at the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT) to identify creative instructional practices and to test their effectiveness.
What are the benefits of a Certificate in Universal Design: Technology Integration?
This certificate program is designed to equip educational professionals and educators-in-training with a comprehensive understanding and practical experience in Universal Design for Instruction (UDI). In addition, the program will foster an understanding of learning differences among students, evidence-based pedagogical practices using UDI, and emerging technologies. The courses are taught by experienced Landmark College and Marlboro College Graduate School faculty, and LCIRT instructors with many years of experience in working with students who learn differently. Participants have the opportunity to observe how Landmark College instructors teach and promote Universal Design.
The Certificate Program in Universal Design: Technology Integration is taught by a mix of Landmark College and Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies faculty and staff. Each one brings unique experience to provide program participants with a wide range of views and knowledge.
