About the Role
The primary function of this role at Murdoch University is to work with academic staff to support the integration of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) across unit and curriculum offerings and promoting a culture of accessibility for all across all course offerings.
The Learning Accessibility Consultant will also provide education and training to staff and students in relation to the use of accessible technologies and universal design tools and strategies.
