Accessibility & UDL: Course Design for Everyone
Overview: Traditionally, accessibility is understood to be a way to provide access to physical spaces and content for people with disabilities. While that is critical, it is also a narrow way of conceptualizing accessibility. This workshop will introduce participants to the theory and practice of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which provides a framework for designing courses, assessments, materials, methods, and learning environments that proactively account for variability in the population. UDL draws from decades of research in neuroscience, cognitive sciences, and education sciences to promote practical and conceptual frames for the design and delivery of courses.
