    Using the syllabus as our template, we'll begin to explore how to put the components of universal design and the four core principles (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust, or POUR) into practice. Brought to you by the NSF funded ATE Central project and the National AEM Center at CAST, we'll explore how you can shape your class syllabus to provide a welcoming environment for all students, including those with disabilities. There will be time to get answers to your accessibility questions, and examples of how others in the community college sector are putting Universal Design for Learning into practice in their classrooms and labs.

    Be inspired to learn accessibility skills to make your ATE project and center STEM curriculum materials, including documents, graphics, and videos, more usable for all learners. Led by experts from CAST (the Center for Applied Special Technology), this interactive workshop will focus on practical uses of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn. As UDL begins with a strong foundation in accessibility, the first half of the workshop will focus on the four accessibility principles of POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust). POUR will be applied to STEM-related course content through a series of material makeover demonstrations. Common examples of educational materials will be first displayed in traditional formats, followed by POUR- aligned accessible versions.
