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.
This course is designed as a basic class for learning how to provide reference assistance when users have questions about statistical tests. The class is designed to help students understand how statistical tests work and for which kinds of data, so that librarians can use that information to help users who may know the math but do not have experience applying it.
