More Promising Practices
DO-IT's Center for Universal Design in Education (CUDE) created an online, searchable Knowledge Base through several projects funded by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Postsecondary Education (Grant numbers P333A990042, P333A020044, and P333A050064), and expanded through grants from the National Science Foundation (Grant numbers CNS-1042260, HRD-0833504, and CNS-1042260). Included is a rich collection of questions and answers, case studies, and promising practices related to individuals with disabilities and their pursuit of education and careers.
Below is a sample of titles, case studies, and promising practices included in the CUDE Knowledge Base. To search the Knowledge Base for these and other articles on universal design, visit www.uw.edu/doit/CUDE/kb.html and select the Search Knowledge Base button on the left side of the screen.
