Vision for the Digicon

The #UDLHE Digital Conference will be an opportunity for UDL-interested (and invested) faculty, staff, and graduate students from around the world to convene and learn together without the burden of geographic and cost-based barriers. It will offer an opportunity to hear from people that we otherwise would not have access to, call for and facilitate presentations that advance the work of UDL in higher education and catalyzes individuals to bring their work and findings to other non-UDL focused conferences.

We will meet via structured online meeting space. We are hoping to include people from around the world both synchronously and asynchronously. Call for proposals are forthcoming. For now - save the date and share!
