OED Certificate Workshop 5: Engaging Universal Design Concepts to Increase Access and Inclusion

Date: 10/06/2014

Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Garden Room Kirby Student Center (KSC)

Cost: Free

Description:

Growing out of a movement to increase access for people with disabilities, the term "universal design" refers to the concept of designing products and environments to be as accessible as possible for all users. Whether it's captioning, gender neutral restrooms, curb cuts or inclusive language, the work of equity and diversity involves paying attention to how we design our classrooms, labs, offices, residence halls, work, curricula, and events to be as welcoming and inclusive as possible. In this workshop, participants learn key concepts of universal design and are given opportunities to assess the inclusivity of their own spaces, products, and communities.
