    Abstract:
    This session attempts to address biases in ways of thinking about accessible design, encouraging an understanding of disability and barriers to access through the lens of Universal Design. When course content and experiences are designed with an eye to removing barriers to access versus ad-hoc, time-of-need remediation for individuals, pedagogy can be elevated to a higher standard for all. Creating and selecting accessible course content can introduce new ways of engaging with pedagogy – often in ways faculty may not expect! Embrace the vulnerability that is inherent to accessibility design work, and see your work connect with others more meaningfully and deeply.
