Thank you for your interest in participating in an upcoming comprehensive survey on a pilot Evaluation Framework for Accessible STEM OER.

Please take 2-3 minutes to complete this questionnaire to introduce yourself and capture your prior experiences with integrating principles of design and guidelines for accessibility into your STEM courses/work.

If you have any questions about this questionnaire, please contact Cynthia Jimes, ISKME Director of Research and Learning at

Below are key terms you will encounter:
Open Educational Resources (OER) 
Open Educational Resources, or OER, refer to any teaching and learning materials that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open licence, such as a Creative Commons Licence, that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution with no or limited restrictions. OER can include lecture notes, slides, lesson plans, textbooks, handouts for students, videos, online tutorials, podcasts, diagrams, entire courses, and other freely available, adaptable material applicable for use in teaching and learning. 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation (Steinfeld and Maisel, 2012). It creates products, systems, and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation. Other terms for Universal Design for Learning used include Design for All, Inclusive Design, and Barrier-Free Design.
