Event description

Description

Universal Design is an inclusive educational framework that takes into account individual learning differences in both the design of course curriculum and in the learning environment. Universal Design emphasises equal access to the curriculum by all students and can be applied in any course.

Join us in exploring the principles and practices of Universal Design to eliminate barriers to learning. This half day event will showcase three Laurier faculty members reflecting on Universal Design in their teaching and its impact on students.
