Participants in this course will gain in-depth understanding of the ways in which Universal Design (UD) is shaping traditional classroom instruction, accommodations, and student support services, both at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Starting with a brief overview of guiding principles and research findings on UD and its various iterations, this course will focus on applications of UD in multiple settings (classrooms, tutorials, lab work, studio, and field studies), and across different contexts (subject areas, orientations, curriculum development). Participants will engage in exploring inclusive and accessible learning products, strategies, and environments relevant to their current profession or area of interest.
