  3. Apply a Universal Design framework to the assessment and next-stage planning related to the participant?s work.

Workshop outcomes include:

  1. Participants will leave with strategies for incorporating principles of Universal Design into their work.
  2. Participants will be able to create a timeline for applying Universal Design to their work.
  3. Participants will be able to develop a plan for assessing their work that incorporates Universal Design principles.
