As we become more comfortable using technology in class, issues of digital accessibility can crop up. We will discuss what digital accessibility means and the universal design for learning (UDL) framework. This workshop will provide a general overview of digital accessibility issues for faculty, staff, and graduate students. We will discuss GW’s policies and share the resources available to help you navigate accessibility online. Finally, we will share four easy ways to start being more accessible today.
