In a previous post I recorded Steve Bigaj talking about the principles of Universal Design and Instruction at a professional development conference at Keene State College. Sheryl Burgsthaler of U. of Washington describes UDI in the following way:
How can educators design instruction to maximize the learning of all students? The field of universal design can provide a starting point for developing a model for instruction. You can apply this body of knowledge to create courses where lectures, discussions, visual aids, videotapes, printed materials, labs, and fieldwork are accessible to all students.
In today's podcast I explore the application of UDI at the college level. I spoke with Steve Bigaj in the School of Education at Keene State College and a student name Amy who has received services in support of her non-verbal learning disability.
