As part of OIA’s mission to build capacity for excellent teaching on our campus, we offer a wide variety of workshops, seminars and facilitated online mini-courses to individuals who teach for the UA.
All of our professional development offerings incorporate Universal Design principles. Registration for these offerings includes space for participants to request any disability-related accommodations that will facilitate their full participation, such as ASL interpreting, captioned videos, Braille or electronic text.
