Centering Disability & Accessibility in Curriculum Design

JuneJun 04 2021 11:00am - 12:30pm


In our final session of the week, we will focus on ways to make education both accessible and inclusive. We will learn from educators who have brought disability and difference into the classroom to create inclusive and person-centred curriculum. Our presenters will highlight how educators can collaboratively create courses with community members using co-design principles and how to implement accessible course design to ensure those courses ensure all learners call fully participate. Attendees will leave this session with new perspective on how design and deliver a curriculum that is truly inclusive.

All events will have American Sign Language and live captions. If you have any other accessibility questions or are looking for further information on how we might support your participation, please contact, or call (416) 978-8587 we will work with you to make appropriate arrangements.
