Inclusive Learning Design: Strategies for Inclusive and Accessible Courses

Thursday, October 20 | 12pm - 1pm

Inclusive Learning Design: Strategies for Inclusive and Accessible Courses While we strive to make education a more inclusive and equitable space, there are still significant barriers and systems that hinder students’ ability to fully engage with a course, and which often leave our most vulnerable students out of learning. This workshop will be an interactive exploration into designing inclusive learning experiences. We will start by discussing the need for inclusive design, look into past initiatives, and provide practical solutions for implementing inclusive design in your courses. Please come prepared with an activity or assignment that you think could be made more inclusive. To facilitate open and frank discussion, we will not be recording this session.

Note: This event will be held online on Zoom. The session will be recorded and distributed to all registrants.

Facilitators: Gabrielle Coombs and Parm Gill
