Welcome to the UDLHE Digicon 2023 – Multiple means of sharing UDL: from information to implementation

October 17-19, 2023

Are you passionate about implementing or expanding UDL practices in Higher Education? If so, our community would love to hear about the work you’re doing. You don’t need to be an expert to share your UDL experiences! You can share your work in a range of different ways including brief info sessions, panel discussions, an in-depth workshop, an online module or any other way that works for you. 

Please consider submitting a presentation proposal for the 2023 Digicon conference in Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education (UDLHE). The premise of this virtual conference is simple: An online conference focused on connecting with colleagues across the globe, sharing stories and best practices, and envisioning how you might grow in your UDL practices in Higher Education. Enjoy virtual interactions with your peers and colleagues about unique challenges and the great work done with UDL in Higher Education!

Whether you are faculty, an administrator, a disability service professional, a professional learning facilitator or an instructional content designer, if you are involved in the research, practices, technological application or implementation of UDL in Higher Education, we want to hear from you. 

The theme of the 2023 Digicon is Multiple Means of Sharing UDL: from information to implementation. This year, our aim is to broaden participation from across the world by creating a timetable that allows live participation for all. We value the coming together live and will encourage you to join sessions live where possible. However, all sessions will also be recorded and available after the event for those who can’t attend live. 

UDL recognizes the diversity of learners and that applies equally to delegates of this conference. You might be new to UDL and want to listen to others talk about their journey, you might be busy and only able to attend for a short time, or you may be familiar with the concepts but really want to explore new ideas and how they might work in your setting. We plan to offer types of sessions to appeal to all from quick share brief sessions to hands on workshops where participants will bring their own material to work on with a supportive group of like-minded professionals.
