    My poster and conversations will center on the importance of using the singular they, especially to replace clunky ‘him/her’ terms, when composing introductory materials. There will be focuses on the inclusiveness it brings to those who use different pronouns, the subtle implication there is a safe space for lgbtqa+, how to implement it grammatically, and its historical uses.

    As Publishing Services coordinator at MSUL, students often request to print a copy of a digital text they have purchased or to bind loose pages they have printed from online sources. The reasons vary, but there is a consistent pattern. This poster presentation begins with a student’s story and then highlights research comparing print and digital reading retention, engagement, eye health, and migraine reporting. It helps explain why print accommodations should be available for digital resources in an academic learning environment.

    What are ways that the actions of a few promote equity among the many? What are some shifts in workflow that open channels for increasing access? What are ways to promote inclusion, increase awareness, fostering a culture of universal accessibility through the tenets of Universal Design for Learning? This poster will demonstrate steps taken from faculty and staff support areas of a campus, identifying how actions within instructional technology can and do promote accessibility and could result in a more central role in modeling and mapping a campus’s growth culture of inclusion, one shaped by these initial questions.
