Welcome to the ADCET podcast where we investigate Inclusive Learning Opportunities Through AI (ILOTA). In this series, we'll explore the exciting convergence of universal design for learning (UDL), artificial intelligence (AI), and accessibility, and examine ways in which we can utilise emerging technologies to enhance learning opportunities for educational designers, educators, and students. 

If you would like to get in touch, we would love to hear from you. You can contact us via email
