Participants will receive a list of course design strategies that increase equity by directly reducing the need for many Disability Resource Center accommodations. This workshop gives universal design and trauma-informed context for teaching and assessment practices. Participants may engage with the topic through break-out room discussion, individual reflection, and/or large-group discussion.
