“Completing the Specialist Certificate in Accessibility & Universal Design has truly been a great journey for me as a designer. During this course, I learned not just how to make my designs more accessible but also how to make learning itself more inclusive. I had a chance to learn more about disabilities, learning difficulties, and assistive technologies, and of course, explored WCAG compliance for accessible and inclusive design”

Lay the cornerstone of your understanding of universal digital learning and accessibility.

What you'll learn:

  • Demystify the key definitions behind accessibility

  • Navigate the landscape of equity in education and legal obligations in the UK, EU, and USA

  • Explore the pivotal role of authoring tools in enhancing accessibility

"I had no idea about some of the assistive technologies out there before completing the Professional Certificate in Accessibility and Universal Design. I now find myself considering the balance between accessibility and broader learner experience in some cases.”

It's not just a portfolio exercise, there is genuine knowledge and practice being shared in the Specialist Certificate in Accessibility and Universal Design. You can feel where the money is going and I think that in the future, small scale certified courses such as these will help people in the employment market. I thought it was a really well facilitated course and I particularly liked the activities. Some courses are just content but this had real world activities that helped you put yourself out of your normal work environment and apply your knowledge to a new challenge.

Since completing the Specialist Certificate in Accessibility and Universal Design, I've become more attuned to the diverse needs of learners. I've especially applied the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles I learned. As a result, I developed a resource that offers students a wide range of choices, and it has been tremendously successful.
