Workshop: Incorporating Universal Design in Your Classroom

Tuesday, November 17, 2015 from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm
2004 Black Engineering

Iowa State is hosting a panel on tools and techniques to incorporate Universal Design into your classroom. The term Universal Design (often inclusive design) refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce products and environments that are inherently accessible to people with a broad range of (in this case, learning) abilities. We invite you to attend and learn what you can easily do in your classroom to enable students to learn content better.
