Universal Design - Updated

  1. 1. Universal Design & Education a presentation by: Katharine Zaback
  2. 2. What is Universal Design? “the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design” (www.ncsu.edu/project/design-projects/udi/center-for-universal-design/the-principles-of-universal-design). How can this apply to education? Universal Design (UD) is about accessibility and celebrating the unique differences in people. It is not about accommodating, but designing for the whole of the student population. Educational design can follow the ideas of UD by implementing strategies that provide for students with a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, languages skills, abilities and disabilities.
  3. 3. A More Concrete Example… This is a standard door. It works for most people (the average) but people who are outside of this standard cannot use it. For example, people too short to reach the door, too tall to get through it, or wheelchair-bound.
  4. 4. A More Concrete Example… However, we can apply Universal Design and create a door that is usable by all people. This door opens automatically, so everyone can use it. Therefore, everyone benefits.
  5. 5. Where Can We Apply Universal Design In The World of Education?
