About the Conference

Athabasca University is hosting a conference that will empower a range of stakeholders in the application of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Accessibility principles in post-secondary education (PSE).

Attendees will gain cutting edge knowledge via informative presentations and practical workshops. They can create networks with others who research, promote and implement UDL and web accessibility in online or blended learning environments in post-secondary education.

This event will be held on January 28 - 30, 2016 at the Chateau Louis Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta.

Why is this important?

The profile of students entering post-secondary institutions is changing and diversity among the student population is now a fact. Post-secondary education is challenged to recognize a wide range of student variability, including age, life experiences, academic preparation, cultural background, languages, learning preference, location, abilities and disabilities. Post-secondary institutions need to be prepared to meet the diverse learning needs of students and to promote the success of students.
