Are you an educator? Learn some new educational techniques at a free lecture at Chestnut Hill College this week.

The college, located at 9601 Germantown Ave., will host a lecture entitled, “Universal Design: It’s for Everyone,” on Wednesday Sept. 5 at 2 p.m. at the school’s East Parlor in Joseph Hall.

Ann Keefer, Ph.D., project coordinator for the Ensuring Higher Education Opportunity for ALL Demonstration Project and the Temple University Institute on Disabilities will host.
