On Behalf of the Queens College Center for Teaching and Learning & Queens College Project Reach (QCPR) 

Please join us as we embark on another journey of our continuing discussion revolving around Universal Design Learning. 

Over the past decade, there has been a substantial increase in the number of Autistic College students (ACS) enrolling in postsecondary education. However, there are distinct challenges faced by ACS and neurodivergent students in their path to graduation. We will discuss learner variability and some of the difficulties that may be experienced by students and instructors. We will also describe how both knowledge of neurodiversity and use of principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) may create a supportive, inclusive learning environment for all students, which may improve student outcomes. 

This event will be virtual (via Zoom) from 12 noon to 1:00 pm on June 15th, 2022. Register for the session here: https://forms.office.com/r/erfdvUU05N
