Applying Universal Design Principles

Universal design helps instructors create courses that are accessible for all students through flexible, varied, and thoughtful curriculum development. 

Faculty can practice Universal Design principles by: 

  • Presenting key information and knowledge in multiple ways,
  • Providing students with varied ways to access the information,
  • Creating multiple options for assessment of knowledge, and
  • Maintaining student interest using varied pedagogical methods.
