The Universal Design for Active Learning at UW Bothell promotes equitable access to electronic materials, best practices in course design and teaching, and active learning and engagement. Universal design refers to spaces, environments and products that are accessible to all people, including those with disabilities. A year old, the initiative has influenced the integration of universal design in course and class design, faculty development and learning communities, and student support materials.
