Description

We know from experience and neuroscience that individuals learn in varied ways. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides educators with practical strategies and techniques to ensure that all learners can meet high expectations. In this session, we will explore the foundational concepts of UDL as one component of an inclusive learning environment—the other two being the universal design of the physical space and the accessibility of the learning tools and materials. The discussion will include demonstrations of a number of new tools for making STEM content accessible for a variety of learners.

Accessible Educational Materials (AEM)

Print- and technology-based educational materials designed to be usable across the widest range of individual variability.
