4. Using Universal Design Principles for Instruction

Provide students with a variety of methods to receive lecture materials, e.g., post lecture notes online, provide transcripts, allow students to record class lectures, etc.

In your syllabus and early in the course, ask students to let you know privately if they require alternative methods.

Be open to communicating with students about their learning styles and using multiple instructional methods to address their needs.

Consider the possible learning styles of your students and construct your materials accordingly. Provide alternate ways for students to demonstrate their knowledge.
