Kinash, Shelley and Knight, Diana (2014) Disability in a digital world: online pedagogy for enabling learning. In: Online learning: an educational development perspective. Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World. Nova Science Publishers, Inc., New York, United States, pp. 149-159. ISBN 978-1-63321-088-2


This chapter addresses the pedagogical dimensions of online learning for university students with disabling conditions. Research reviews indicate that the technologies of online learning do not preclude the participation of students with disabling conditions. The increasingly hightech design of online learning poses challenges for some learners. The principles of universal design for learning (UDL) are used to explain that proactive design allows educators to enable learning for diverse students. The chapter provides a practical summary of the pedagogical dimensions of online learning in the context of student diversity.
