I saw an inquiry about Universal Instructional Design (UID) on LRNASST in
the past couple of days. I worked with colleagues here at the University of
Minnesota and other institutions nationally to develop practical materials
for implementing UID (sometimes also known as Universal Design for Learning
(UDL) in the classroom and also within student affairs services and
program. It was supported by a federally-funded grant. These materials
paired with a quality developmental-level course program can increase
access and success of students.

Following are the web links to the free materials:
1. J. I. Higbee & E. Goff (Eds.), Pedagogy and student services for
institutional transformation: Implementing Universal Design in higher
education. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota, College of Education and
Human Development. Retrieved from ERIC database. (ED503835). 

2. Implementing UID in student service programs and services 

3. Implementing UID by faculty members and staff 

4. Video interviews of faculty and student perspectives on inclusive

5. Uncertain Welcome: Video interviews of student voices on disability and
postsecondary education

Design in Higher Education.
