Incorporating Universal Design into a course is an iterative process, much like course design itself. Continually utilizing feedback and ideas from colleagues, class discussion, and the literature to modify and enrich learning experiences provides greater opportunities for all students to access course content, regardless of learning modality preference. UC Berkeley’s Instructional Design Community focused on Universal Design and shared these tips to consider.
Accessible education services staff are available to consult with faculty members interested in incorporating Universal Design into courses. Are you intrigued by the idea of measuring learning outcomes and/or overall student learning experience in a Universally-Designed course? Would you like an objective AES staffperson to assist in reviewing your spring semester course syllabus for UD ideas? Would you simply like to debrief about a specific course element? If so, AES would love to hear from you. Please contact Melanie Gangle at email@example.com for more information.
