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.
