Inclusive Business Education: Applying Principles of Universal Design (self-paced)

Online Professional Development Workshop


More Information

Universal design is the practice of developing products and services which meet the needs of as many people as possible without modification. As our student cohort is becoming increasingly diverse, universal design for instruction (UDI) offers timely strategies for inclusive business educators.

During this self-paced workshop, participants will be introduced to the nine principles of UDI (equitable use, flexibility in use, simple and intuitive, perceivable, tolerance for errors, low physical effort, size and space for appropriate use, community of learners and instructional climate) and how they might play out in their teaching. Participants will be given access to related resources to use within their own professional practice.

On completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the needs of our diverse student community
  • Recognise and recall principles of universal design for instruction
  • Apply appropriate strategies within one’s teaching for face-to-face, online or blended delivery
