Inclusion means everyone: Designing your Course for Universal Access

Virtual Event

Inclusion Means Everyone: 

Designing your Course for Universal Access


Presented by Alan Safai, Instructional Designer, Educational Technology Services; Kerry Tate, Director, Office of Student AccessAbility; Dr. Karen Huxtable, Interim Director, CTL


 Please join us for an interactive webinar in which we will examine strategies for inclusive teaching with particular focus on Universal Design for Learning (UDL).  UDL is an approach to proactively designing course instruction, materials, and content so that all students are able to access learning, thereby reducing the need for reactive retrofitting or special accommodations, saving faculty time and effort. The concepts behind UDL encourage instructors to create flexibility and choice in their courses so that unintended barriers to learning can be avoided or diminished.  Participants will discuss case examples with guidance from experts in instructional design and inclusive teaching for disabled students.  Our goal is to promote joyful inclusion and rejection of ableist practices.
