Abstract:The paper explores the potential of universal design for learning (UDL) in addressing mental health (MH) issues within higher education (HE) teaching and learning, from a multi-disciplinary perspective. It examines first the hurdles which are generically reported to accessibility services by students. It then explores the tension instructors report with regards to addressing students' mental health issues in the classroom. Lastly, the paper examines UDL solutions which are being proposed by instructional designers, from a design perspective, to minimize the impact of mental health issues within the learning experience.
