Webinar Description

This webinar will provide strategies for designing or modifying pedagogical "ways of doing" to reinforce increasing the diversity of students benefitting from various learning space experiences.

Considering inclusive strategies in STEM environments, participants will: learn about common barriers to access and inclusion within STEM education; be introduced to the principles of Universal / Inclusive Design for Learning (UDL/IDL); and explore embedded or specific accommodations for both physical and non-apparent disabilities. Further, additional resources outside the geosciences will be shared for catalyzing our community efforts.
