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. We will discuss GW’s policies and share the resources available to help you navigate digital accessibility. Finally, we will share four easy ways to start being more accessible today.

This workshop is part of the Digital Accessibility series for GW community members seeking the tools and understanding to make their teaching, research, and communication more inclusive and accessible to all audiences. GW is committed to making all digital content, including websites, social media, documents, etc. accessible and usable for everyone. For more information on Digital Accessibility, visit
