Universal Design: Making Environmental Education Inclusive and Accessible  

Universal design principles support designers in creating more usable and equitable educational materials and experiences. Presented by Melanie Thornton, this webinar will discuss universal design principles and explore how they can inform environmental education. We’ll consider some in person implications but focus primarily on virtual educational offerings.

She provides professional development and technical assistance on topics related to disability, diversity, digital access, leadership, and design.
