Accessibility in Teaching & Learning

Teaching accessibly is something everyone can do, but it can sometimes be difficult to know where or how to start. This seminar will provide participants with opportunities to explore different approaches to accessibility and accommodation, apply principles of universal design to existing teaching materials, and exchange constructive feedback with other instructors.
