About

Inherent in all learning environments, and in particular virtual learning spaces, are barriers. These can include barriers unique to individual students or a product of the technology. At California State University, Fresno, the large variety of university students include over 50% of students in poverty, first generation, and emergent bilingual language learners. The challenge of capturing the talents of this group is often a struggle for instructors, particularly in digital courses. Instructors should use design elements of UDL within post-secondary courses. These include: identifying barriers to learning, alternatives for participating during class time, effective alternative assessments based on construct relevance, and UDL meta-cognitive goals and transparency.
