Please join us on Wednesday, February 13 for Teachers Talking. Topic: Using Universal Design to Create Accessible Classrooms. Consider how many access letters you've received from students in the past. Chances are, you've seen a handful or more. These letters address barriers that students may face when accessing course material. The concept of universal design encourages instructors to consider potential student barriers during the planning stages of their courses in an effort to promote inclusive education. Oftentimes, instructors find that universally-designed classes enhance learning opportunities for all learners, not just students with disabilities. Staff from Accessibility Resources will be joined by faculty from multiple disciplines to discuss ways to incorporate universal design in your planning, as well as to consider ways you're already creating inclusive environments. Program is at 11:30 am and 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, then meet in the St Peter Room.
