Accessibility Session Friday

For Faculty Tomorrow, Accessibility Session
My wife and I have been very sick and I forgot to post this earlier. I sincerely apologize for the oversight and hope you can make it to this important event:

Are your instructional materials accessible to all? Universal Design for Learning is a model pedagogical strategy that empowers faculty to effectively and creatively design and teach courses in a way that makes learning accessible to a wider range of learners. UDL is a proactive approach to designing course instruction, materials, and content to benefit people of all learning styles without adaptation or retrofitting. Thus, UDL provides equal access to learning, not simply equal access to information. This presentation will review the principles of UDL and examine various ways faculty have successfully adopted these strategies across different academic disciplines.

Fri. Feb 9, 2007, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM, IRC 210. More info and contact info to RSVP is here.
