Post-secondary education remains mostly inaccessible to non-traditional students. Many colleges do not have the proper resources or programs to effectively support a wide variety of learners who all present with different educational challenges and needs. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) promotes diverse teaching methods to benefit all students. Although faculty and administrators are aware of the increasing diversity of college students and the need for greater flexibility in instructional design, many do not know how to successfully use UDL in their courses. This article discusses a grassroots effort by a group of professors to devise a no-cost, low-input, high-impact way to share strong instructional practices, all rooted in Universal Design for Learning, that could enhance teaching and learning across the institution.
