Universal Design for Libraries and Librarians
Instructors: Holly Mabry, Digital Services Librarian, Gardner-Webb University; and Jessica Olin, Director of the Library, Robert H. Parker Library, Wesley College
May 15 to June 19, 2017
Universal Design is the idea of designing products, places, and experiences to make them accessible to as broad a spectrum of people as possible, without requiring special modifications or adaptations. This course will present an overview of universal design as a historical movement, as a philosophy, and as an applicable set of tools. Students will learn about the diversity of experiences and capabilities that people have, including disabilities (e.g. physical, learning, cognitive, resulting from age and/or accident), cultural backgrounds, and other abilities. The class will also give students the opportunity to redesign specific products or environments to make them more universally accessible and usable.
