Universal Design for Learning and Web Accessibility: Meeting the Needs of All Students is a face-to-face or facilitated online competency development course that will help you gain a better understanding of accessibility as a civil rights issue and develop the knowledge and skills you need to design learning experiences that promote inclusive learning environments.
