Universal Design (UD) & ​​Universal Design for Learning​

You have probably heard about these concepts. They relate to how we can design teaching, learning and our environments in ways that do not exclude people from participating. It ensures that people with disabilities are largely included in life and academically. These videos reflect on campus spaces in and out of the classroom. See how UD and UDL would make these better (or not?).
