For Instructors

Developed and maintained by Instructional Design and Educational Assessment (IDEA Shop), Accessibility and Universal Design for Learning at Boise State provides faculty, staff, and students with information and other resources about electronic accessibility and the principles of universal design for learning, focusing on the influence of both on teaching and learning. For faculty, the site provides tips, techniques, and strategies for incorporating accessibility and universal design into  teaching and learning, along with such resources as whitepapers, webinars, and a Community of Practice. Staff and students will find on the site practical, current answers to questions on such matters as accommodation of students with disabilities, assistive technology, and campus resources. In addition, faculty can use the site to schedule consultations with instructional design consultants at the IDEA Shop, to discuss the pedagogical aspects of accessibility and universal design for learning.
