Does your educational institution narrowly address accessibility as a compliance issue? Learn how to face it by implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in your initial framework. In this webinar, hosted by Verbit and featuring the AEM Center’s Cynthia Curry, participants will learn how to take accessibility further by implementing UDL, a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all learners. The webinar will provide insight on where to begin on your UDL journey, and will explore the impact of incorporating UDL and AI tools in your educational framework.
