Universal Design for Instruction: A Matter of Equitable Access to Learning
DeVore, Simone; Stuart, Shannon; Riall, Ann
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v19 n2-3 p87-106 2008
Universal design for instruction is an inclusive teaching model that the authors advocate for responding to the diverse learning needs of students in today's postsecondary classrooms. The goal of universally designed courses is to allow all students to have available a menu of choices by which they can access curriculum content, engage in learning activities, and participate in assessments. The authors first outline the framework of universal design; next, they explore the need for universal design for instruction in higher education; and finally, they provide an overview of the universal design model they implement in their courses.
