Join us for a morning with Thomas Tobin, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) expert and author of “Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education“.
In this interactive keynote session, you will learn attainable techniques for lowering access barriers that produce tangible results. You’ll also find out how to build on already-strong foundations in community with your colleagues. Specifically, by attending this keynote session, you will be able to
- frame diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts within a “step zero” need for access to content, community, teaching, and the wider world;
- define areas in your own interactions with students that are good starting points for more-inclusive design efforts;
- draft the steps you can take in order to effect change within the boundaries of your available time, resources, and funds; and
- speak to leadership colleagues about accessibility as a mission-critical imperative for all programs and services, in language that resonates with their priorities.
Dr. Tobin will also provided the workshop “Applying UDL to One Interaction” immediately following the keynote address.
NAU Teaching Day is a collaboration of the NAU Teaching Academy, Faculty Professional Development Program, and the Office of the Provost. Closed captioning support will be provided by NAU Disability Resources.
