The Center for Universal Design at North Carolina State University
An initiative of the College of Design at North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Raleigh, NC, the Center conducts original research on usability, disseminates information on UD, and provides training and technical assistance to the public, businesses, students, educators, and government organizations. The Center’s work promotes Universal Design —the idea that all new environments and products, to the greatest extent possible, should be usable by everyone regardless of their age, ability, or circumstance.
Peers As Partners In Learning
What is Peers as Partners in Learning?
The Peers as Partners in Learning (PPL) program begins with students being approved to enroll in the Peers as Partners in Learning courses (High School course found on CPALMS #1400340 and Middle School course CPALMS #1400025.) This elective course is designed to provide peer supports for students with disabilities. Students with and without disabilities who are partners in the PPL course comprise the PPL program at their specific school.
The Peers as Partners in Learning program provides reciprocal
- social, and
benefits to students with and without disabilities, in an inclusive setting. Inclusion means that students with disabilities receive services and supports in general education classrooms and settings with their same age peers without disabilities.
FIN has developed the Peers as Partners in Learning Curriculum and Planning Guide to help schools, administrators and teacher teams launch a PPL program at their schools.
Any of these trainings can be provided through on-line modules (www.floridainclusionnetwork.com, under the “Products” tab), or through face to face trainings.
