Universal Design in Education: Teaching Nontraditional Students Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teachers at all levels, from K-12 through college and university settings to adult and continuing education, now deal with a remarkably diverse student body. Universal design, an approach previously adopted in architecture and engineering, offers cost-effective ways to respond to the special needs of these diverse students. In universal design, teachers provide appropriate media (e.g., disks, materials posted on Web pages) that are readable by people with learning disabilities or blindness and are also accessible to distance-learning students.

By offering participatory exercises and collaborative learning opportunities, teachers respond to the preferences of many students of Hispanic origin as well as many who have different learning styles. Teachers can also adjust the layout of a classroom, the ways in which students communicate with each other and with the instructor, and the language(s) in which information is presented. Bowe explains these techniques and supplies resources with additional information. This book is an invaluable resource for teachers, student teachers, and support personnel who help teachers meet special needs at all levels.

Book News Annotation:

Intended to be used as a handbook, this volume provides teachers of all grades and programs with ways of designing and delivering instruction that responds to the needs of diverse students, including those with disabilities, different learning styles, scheduling difficulties, and of ethnic and racial minority cultures. Bowe (special education, Hofstra U.) outlines seven educational principles basic to the concept of universal design and addresses web site accessibility.

Synopsis:

By taking simple steps in advance of teaching, educators can greatly expand the appeal of instruction on all levels, from K-12 school through colleges and universities to adult or continuing education programs. Using disks, Web pages, language translation software, listservs, and other steps can lower the cost of accommodating to the diverse needs of students with disabilities, older students, students from different cultures, and students with different learning styles, while at the same time enhancing the quality of instruction.

Synopsis:

Offers cost-effective ways to respond to the special needs of today's diverse students.
