Creating  Inclusive Training Through Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Program Description:

Being able to create inclusive, accessible learning experiences is a critical skill, but what are the best ways to do this? Are we considering enough options as we create our training? Join Dr. Suzanne Ehrlich, Dr. Michelle Bartlett, and Nick Tillem as they share  best practices based on the Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will explore and share design strategies which support the adoption and incorporation of the UDL mindset framework

  • Participants will discuss ways in which UDL and accessibility intersect throughout learning spaces

  • Participants will create a plan for incorporating UDL in the trainings and workspaces through collaborative activities
