Always."The University of North Florida’s College of Education and Human Services (COEHS) has unveiled a new virtual lab focused on Universal Design for Learning. The Universal Design for Inclusion in Training and Education (UNITE) Design Lab will serve as a virtual space for corporations, companies, and organizations to engage in research, collaboration, training and development for today’s workforce aimed at promoting innovation and inclusivity.

 

The UNITE Lab will focus on developing research and collaborative networks that utilize inclusivity in training design and delivery; outreach and resources for organizations to advance their inclusive training and development practices; and as a hub for national and global stakeholders to create greater understanding of the value of a universal design mindset in professional workplace training.
