Equal Access: Universal Design of Instruction - US

The Center for Universal Design in Education (CUDE) develops and collects resources to help educators apply universal design to all aspects of the educational experience. The Universal Design of Instruction (UDI) framework means that, rather than designing for the average student, you design instruction for potential students who have broad ranges with respect to ability, disability, age, reading level, learning style, native language, race, and ethnicity. Regarding students with disabilities, UDI challenges the instructor to go beyond legal compliance to proactively make all aspects of instruction accessible, including class climate, interaction, physical environments and products, delivery methods, information resources and technology, feedback, and assessment.
