- Apply a Universal Design framework to the assessment and next-stage planning related to the participant?s work.
Workshop outcomes include:

- Participants will be able to create a timeline for applying Universal Design to their work.
- Participants will be able to develop a plan for assessing their work that incorporates Universal Design principles.
