Abstract: Students with diverse learning needs are the norm rather than the exception in many of today’s university classrooms. Integrating the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in university coursework provides a layer of support for students with diverse learning needs to access the university curriculum. A specific example of a low cost technological application of UDL in teacher education to create a flexible learning environment will be demonstrated. The potential of university education, including teacher education, to model the advantages of mobile computing platforms and flexible media will be put forward. Results of a survey, Approaches and Study Skills Inventory for Students, ASSIST (short version) of the perspectives of a student’s perception of how they best learn and study will be shared along with the frequency this novel technological support was accessed.
