"The Univeral Design conceptual framework reflects an understanding of disability as one of many forms of diversity, such as those defined by gender, race, age, and ethnicity" (Burgstahler and Russo-Gleicher, 2015)

This workshop will provide faculty with an understanding of Universal Design of Instruction and concrete ideas for implementing UD in the classroom.  Using small group discussion and case studies, we will illustrate how ALL students can benefit from a course curriculum and classroom environment that enables students to learn, participate, and perform to the best of their abilities.
