Creating the most accessible learning experience requires an understanding of how learning spaces can best support teaching and learning. We’re heading to ATIA this week to discuss just that-how different types of active learning spaces can improve access to learning and reduce barriers for students (using Universal Design for Learning as a framework). We hope to see you there!
