Subject: [Athen] ATHEN/AHG dinner meeting at CSUN - Thursday, March 2, 7:30 pm

Dear Colleagues:

As per previous years, I'd like to hold a dinner/meeting at the Harbor House (behind the Grand Hyatt) on Thursday evening (7:30 p.m.), March 2, at CSUN (International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference) for dinner and for ATHEN members (or others) to provide their input on this year's Accessing Higher Ground conference. Please let me know if you plan to attend so I can guestimate the right size table.

Note about dinner/meeting time: I know in past years there's been a Tweet-up event in the evening on Thursday. As a result we've met a little later - about 8:15 in the past. I don't see anything in the schedule (about any evening events except the Tuesday keynote). Anyway, we can always move the meeting time back a bit if there's a conflicting event.

NEA grant on Promoting the Integration of Universal Design into University Curricula (UDUC) – Focus on National Dissemination

I don't know how many of you remember the UDUC project from a few years ago but a nationally directed version of the project was funded for 2017 - 2018. I'd like to get your input on strategies for carrying out the objective of the project - increasing the teaching of UD and accessibility related content in design and tech classes. I.e. what's the best way to reach faculty and what training/resources would most contribute to achieving the goal of the project.

I'll probably schedule this meeting at around Thursday6:30, before the ATHEN/AHG meeting, either at the hotel cafe or at the Harbor House. Let me know if you're interested in participating. I may schedule some other times for this during the week.

See you next week.
