Working Group: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Starting July 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light long-standing inequities in the educational access that students with disabilities face in university settings. In addition, for many students, disability is only one dimension of marginalization. Challenges to educational access can also be compounded by race, socio-economic status, gender, sexuality, and citizenship. As we continue to navigate teaching and learning during the pandemic, some persistent questions endure. How can we more meaningfully address the diverse needs of students with disabilities at both the undergraduate and graduate levels? How can we draw on lessons learned from remote learning to help create more universally accessible learning spaces for students?
