This paper defines universal design for learning, presents examples of
how universally designed technology hardware and software applications
promote increased learning, and provides examples of how professors
integrate UDL and technology into college settings to enhance learning
outcomes of all students, including those with disabilities. UDL
strategies enhance the quality of higher education through the creation
of more flexible and student-centered learning environments. UDL
strategies enhance learning for all students, including students with
disabilities who are majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering and
Math (STEM), one of the most rigorous academic disciplines, but also one
of the most financially rewarding careers. (C) 2012 The Authors.
