Proposals for the LIRT President’s Program at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, IL (June 22-27, Thursday-Tuesday, 2023) are currently being accepted. Those received by Thursday, December 1, will receive priority consideration.

Program Title: “Universal design for learning – planning for all learners”

Universal design for learning is an educational framework that optimizes teaching to accommodate all learners through multiple means of representation, expression, and action & engagement. By creating accessible, inclusive learning experiences, libraries of all types can provide more equitable library services and support for learners through intentional, proactive, and reflective practices. In this session, participants will learn how librarians from different library types are incorporating universal design for learning into their instruction, whether in-person and/or online, to help reduce barriers and encourage learning.

Submit a proposal.

Any questions may be directed to Julie Hornick (jhornick@flsouthern.edu), LIRT Conference Program Planning Committee Co-Chair.
