Online instruction in general and blended instruction in particular have gained a sizable and permanent foothold in postsecondary educational environments. In addition, student diversity has become the norm. Universal design for instruction is a framework that consists of nine principles for instructional design and delivery; it proposes that course designers proactively consider the needs of all students. The present article discusses the convergence of blended instructional techniques with universal design for instruction, which provides a unique opportunity for course designers to address the needs of a diverse student population.
