Online Workshop: An Introduction to Universal Design for Educators
Description: Many educators are acutely aware that all learners are unique with different strengths, preferences, experiences, backgrounds, and needs. However, with all of this rich diversity, there's no way to design a perfectly-tailored educational experience for each individual student. So what's an educator to do?
The answer lies in Universal Design--a framework that doesn't focus on perfection, but rather emphasizes designing and teaching to the edges so that the full educational experience is as optimally welcoming, accessible, and inclusive as can be for all learners. Through the pillars of Universal Design, this online workshop aims to provide educators with a deep understanding of UD foundations in order to focus on creating the optimum educational experience not just within, but also outside, the classroom.
