University academic teachers have the responsibility to ensure the inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in their classrooms. To this end, as has been confirmed in several studies, it is necessary to incorporate competences in the teaching CVs; specific training on disability, social, communicative and pedagogical skills among others... Also, university teaching staff must be supported by their institutions and be predisposed to be trained in such competences. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is responsible for facilitating flexible and inclusive educational practice; it aims to respond to the training needs of both students and teaching staff in all their diversity.

Abstract

University academic teachers have the responsibility to ensure the inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in their classrooms. To this end, as has been confirmed in several studies, it is necessary to incorporate competences in the teaching CVs; specific training on disability, social, communicative and pedagogical skills among others... Also, university teaching staff must be supported by their institutions and be predisposed to be trained in such competences. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is responsible for facilitating flexible and inclusive educational practice; it aims to respond to the training needs of both students and teaching staff in all their diversity.
