In partnership with the Learning Effectiveness Program (LEP) and the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs (VPFA), the Office of Teaching and Learning is excited to announce the fifth Neurodiversity Institute! This in-person, two day event focuses on exploring the critical themes of neurodiversity, accessibility, and Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

This winter's Neurodiversity Institute will be held on Tuesday, December 5th, and Wednesday, December 6th, 2023. Both days will run from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The purpose of this institute is not only to bring awareness to accessibility and the importance of UDL, but also to empower faculty in utilizing technology to create an inclusive environment for all students. Faculty will receive a $1000 stipend for their participation in this institute; $500 for attendance and $500 upon completion of the deliverables assignment. By joining, you'll develop the skills to articulate key concepts, apply UDL principles, and advocate for student needs in your department. 

If you are interested, please fill out the interest form. This open invite is for faculty, and we will give preference to full-time faculty interest given that part of the deliverables includes engagement with the home department at a leadership level. 

Please reach out to the Office of Teaching and Learning at with any follow-up questions.

In this 90-minute, interactive workshop, you’ll be introduced to concept of designing for significant learning – that is, learning that has the potential to change students’ lives in lasting and important ways. You’ll also become familiar with two tools/frameworks – the Taxonomy of Significant Learning and the Three-Column Alignment Table - that can support you in this design work, and have the opportunity to practice applying these tools/frameworks in thinking about the design of your own courses.
