      Inclusive Pedagogy Workshop - Accommodations and Beyond - Inclusive Strategies for Online and Classroom Teaching

      The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence along with the Office of Equity and Diversity are excited to continue our Inclusive Pedagogy Workshop Series for faculty. The series, Examining Pedagogy Through an Inclusive Lens, will highlight strategies and best practices to foster an inclusive classroom environment for a diverse student population. Topics include racial diversity, gender expression/identity, disability accommodations, and working with veteran students.

      Join us on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 @ 11:30am for Accommodations and Beyond: Inclusive Strategies for Online and Classroom Teaching presented by Dr. Rebecca Spirito Dalgin, Ph.D., CRC, CPRP, Professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Services and the Rehabilitation Counseling Masters Degree program director.

      Students of all abilities and backgrounds want classes that are inclusive and convey respect. For faculty and students with disabilities, the classroom and online education settings may present certain challenges that need accommodation and consideration. This workshop will focus on inclusive practices faculty can employ for students with disabilities. Topics such as classroom accommodations, disability inclusive language, confidentiality/disclosure and stigma, universal design, and available resources will be discussed.

      Dr. Dalgin received her M.S. and Ph.D in Rehabilitation Counseling from Syracuse University. Rebecca has been working with individuals with disabilities as a rehabilitation service provider, researcher, and professor for nearly 30 years. She has been a co-facilitator of the Annual Northeastern U.S. Conference on disABILITY here at the University of Scranton since 2005. Her research interests and clinical work have focused on individuals living with chronic mental illnesses, psychiatric rehabilitation programs, rehabilitation education, and the intersection of disability and employment.
