Survey: Defining Current Practices in Teaching Universal Design

Georgia Tech is interested in learning more about the presentation of Universal Design in university-level design courses.  We are currently surveying instructors who teach design-related courses.  If you are an instructor in a design-related discipline such as human-computer interaction, biomedical engineering, industrial design, human factors, or rehabilitation engineering please complete the survey. 

Although it is not necessary for you to have taught a course that included Universal Design, it is important for you to have an awareness of the definition and/or philosophy associated with Universal Design.  Universal design is “the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.”  If you are not familiar with this definition or a similar one, please ignore this survey request.  Please pass this survey request along to colleagues who may be teaching about Universal Design.

The survey is brief and will aid in defining current practices in teaching about Universal Design.  Your responses will also assist us in developing course strategies and resources for instructors who have a range of experience and knowledge related to Universal Design.
