Learning Access Through Universal Design Fellowship

JMU faculty are invited to learn how to apply the fundamental principles of universal design for learning (UDL) in our Learning Access Through Universal Design Fellowship, offered in partnership with CHBS and CFI.

Built on content from our self-paced offering, Learning Access through Universal Design, this fellowship is an opportunity for faculty participants to develop UDL-informed course components (e.g. an accessible syllabus, instructional media, or assessment item) and to document this problem-solving process in a real teaching context as educational design research. View a reflection from a 2023-24 fellow.


We are able to offer 6 faculty participants $500 each for their active participation in this 2024 fellowship. Part-time or full-time JMU faculty members are welcome to apply.


This fellowship will run between May and December 2024. The first introductory meeting will take place on Thursday, May 23, 2024 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Participants can expect to spend a total of about 4-8 hours of synchronous time and 7-8 hours of asynchronous learning and working time, with consultative support upon request.
