When it was first established, the Disability Cultural Center at UIC was one of just a handful of organizations focused on the social justice framing of disability issues on college campuses. Today, the DCC supports a thriving campus community with a range of programming. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Margaret Fink of the UIC DCC will share her experiences working with students and faculty in a variety of educational settings.

Typically, pre-conference workshops have anywhere from 10-25 attendees. As such, they are able to have a significant amount of interactivity. 


Participants will be able to:

  • become familiar with an anti-ableist conceptual framework for thinking about their practice as instructional librarians
  • apply principles of inclusive design to one of their own lesson plans
  • broaden their repertoire of practices in the service of anti-ableism
