Scott, Sally S.; Loewen, Gladys; Funckes, Carol; Kroeger, Sue
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v16 n2 p78-89 Spr 2003
Universal Design (UD) is a new approach to educational access that is receiving a great deal of attention. At this point, it is in its exploratory stages in the context of higher education. In recognition of the potential importance of this new paradigm and the need for focused initiatives in the field, a UD Think Tank was formulated and hosted by the Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD). This report is a summary of the work of the UD Think Tank pertaining to the needs and interests of the readership of the "Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability". The report suggests starting points and future directions for scholarly activity in the field.
