Course Design that Meets More Learners' Needs - Dennis Pierce, Campus Technology

ECU is one of three North Carolina universities taking part in a grant-funded project called College STAR, which aims to support students with learning disabilities. These challenges might include dyslexia, dyscalculia and problems with focusing or memory recall, among others. One way College STAR supports these students is by training faculty and instructional designers in the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework for creating flexible learning environments that can accommodate a wide variety of learning styles. The project's goal is to "help our universities be more welcoming places for students with learning differences," said Sarah Williams, principal investigator.
