Faculty and academic departments create curriculum for their classes, but end up having to augment, edit and amend them to ensure accessibility once a Student with a Disability enrolls in a course. By using Universal Design Principles for Learning in curriculum creation, not only do they automatically meet accessibility requirements, they provide an environment conducive to learning for all of their students, regardless of disability or learning modality. Presenters Maria Pena, the Associate Director from the Disability Resource Center, and Philip Voorhees, Technology Accessibility Coordinator from the Office of Accessibility Resources, will discuss UDL principles, their use and application to academia.
This event is free and open to UNLV faculty and staff.
