50 min Session Abstract:
In the face of a global pandemic, online learning exploded in educational and workplace environments.
Within growing virtual communities, barriers including those of access and representation have become
more prevalent. Through the power of learning design, we can build approaches and networks to
empower all learners and shape the future of inclusive online learning spaces. In response to those left
behind in learning along with my own experiences with dyslexia, I have developed an Inclusive Learning
Design framework that is applicable to various learning audiences and subject matters. As I share this
work, I have witnessed its impact on individuals and organizations and am thrilled about the greater
transformation to come.

This session will be an opportunity to learn more about the Inclusive Learning Design framework and how to                                                              integrate it to your own work as an educator or designer.
