College classrooms are increasingly diverse and yet curriculum and instruction are frequently designed and delivered with assumptions that one-size-fits-all. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce faculty to the concept of Universal Design and its implications for enhancing the success of diverse students.
Faculty members will explore the theory of universal design in education and its practical application for their courses. Each participant will conduct an accessibility audit of an existing course and explore how specific resources, strategies, and tools can be integrated into the course to enhance accessibility, engagement, and performance.
Workshop Outcomes: Shared Faculty Resources
