@TisForTraining Resource Recommendation – Universal Design: Places to Start

Photo of Jay DolmageJay Dolmage, associate professor at the University of Waterloo (Canada) is a committed to disability rights.  His writings on the topic include the book Disability Rhetoric  (2014), Academic Ableism: Disability and Higher Education (2017), and Disabled Upon Arrival: Eugenics, Immigration, and the Construction of Race and Disability (2018).  He is the Founding Editor of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies. In 2015, he published online a “long list of UD suggestions, organized according to some of the different modes of ‘delivery’ or styles of teaching in higher education.”  The list – “Universal Design: Places to Start” – in a 23-page appendix (PDF) in Disability Studies Quarterly.

On T is for Training, we have frequently discussed elements of universal design, without using that phrase.  Some of the suggestions are things we’ve discussed, while some are not.  With an increased focus on accessibility, this list is definitely worth using.
