Universal design (UD) is an approach to creating spaces that are accessible and inclusive by accounting for variability; when applied to syllabus creation, we can welcome all learners to our classes and proactively remove barriers to learning. Understanding universal design for inclusive syllabus creation will also lead to a more inclusive learning experience throughout the semester. Join us for this opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and to prepare your syllabus for the Spring (please bring a Word draft of your spring class syllabus). Lunch will be provided. Please let us know about any dietary or other access needs.

Lead facilitator: Daisy Breneman Faculty Associate, JMU Libraries Justice Studies Academic Advisor
