Open 3 Hour Session Limited to 50 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

This three-hour workshop is an introductory workshop to the concepts of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Accessibility Practices.

In addition to introducing the three main principles, this session offers participants concrete examples about incorporating UDL into their teaching and design practices, as well as “take away” promising practices and additional resources for further exploration.

We will use a set of activities/questions to engage the participants to ask and answer questions around their institutional and departmental priorities, individual goals in the path of universal design and accessibility in their course design, teaching, technology integration, optimizing student engagement.

The activities are designed to promote critical thinking on the key questions on the what, how and why of UDL and Accessibility.
