Design is a creative activity. However, when designers fail to properly understand the full array of human diversity, their work can include barriers that make it difficult or impossible for individuals with disabilities to access, engage, and benefit. This issue has huge implications on the context of the design of educational materials for 21st century learners. This chapter provides an introduction to the issues associated with accessible instructional design and provides an overview of the chapters selected for inclusion in this volume.
