University Faculty Attitudes and Actions toward Universal Design: A Literature Review

  • YI-FAN LI Texas A&M University

Abstract

The purpose of this literature review was to examine postsecondary education (PSE) facultyâs attitudes toward and applications of universal design (UD) in their classes. After a comprehensive searching and screening process, we identified 14 studies that met the inclusion criteria. Results of the review revealed factors that influenced facultyâs attitudes toward and applications of UD. Some of the studies showed a gap between having a positive attitude toward UD and the actual applications of it. Findings of the review seem to suggest that certain training activities would help develop facultyâs interest and competencies for applying UD in their classes. This review also provided discussions and implications of applying UD in PSE settings.
