About the Cards

CAST is pleased to announce the publication of the Deck of Spaces™: Higher Education Edition, a unique resource that considers how the design of postsecondary learning spaces contributes to teaching and learning. The cards provide a crosswalk of the research-based Universal Design for Learning principles of pedagogy with best practices in the accessible design of built environments.

Authored jointly by the award-winning architecture firm Gould Evans (now known as Multistudio) and education researchers of the Universal Design for Learning Implementation & Research Network (UDL-IRN), the Deck of Spaces™ will prove an invaluable resource to anyone concerned with improving teaching and learning in institutions of higher education.

The Deck of Spaces™: Higher Education Edition is available now from CAST ($38.00, 75-card deck with instruction booklet)!
