  • Who are the people who make up our learning communities? How do they learn? How do they interact with content? How do they demonstrate their knowledge?
  • We need to build inclusive digital learning spaces using a framework of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), cemented together with accessible tools. What is needed? Is there an ethical concern? What is our moral obligation?
  • Join the discussion and workshop on how to make digital accessible content for courses and presentations.
  • Discover the who, why, what, how, and the challenges of creating inclusive communities.
