Accessible Education Presentation, Paul Grossman
Start Date: 3/1/2018Start Time: 11:15 AM
End Date: 3/1/2018End Time: 12:45 PM

Event Description
The third workshop in our Spring Series is on best practices and understanding the legal obligations of equal access for students with disabilities. On March 1st, Paul Grossman (bio below) will visit Willamette and give a series of presentations/conversations/workshops with various folks on campus. His main presentation, from 11:15 a.m.-12:45 p.m. is open to all faculty and staff who wish to know more about the ADA. His presentation will include a civil rights perspective, universal design principles, and key legal decisions that inform our work. Paul is a highly respected presenter at many institutions of higher ed and is known to be a knowledgeable, powerful speaker and advocate.

The presentation will take place on Thursday, March 1st from 11:15-12:45 p.m. in Montag Den. Coffee and cookies will be provided, please bring your own lunch.

In the afternoon, from 4:00-5:30 in Montag Den, Paul will host a workshop geared toward faculty (but open to staff as well). Faculty will have more time to ask questions about his earlier presentation, as well as learn from folks on campus who make inclusion and universal design central to their pedagogy. We will have time to work in small groups with case studies designed to help us employ what we have learned and strategize best practices together. Scenarios might include:
When a student goes to faculty to request an accommodation
When faculty thinks a request is a fundamental alteration
Request from a student with anxiety
Recording in a class

After the group work, we will have a panel of folks: Allison Hobgood, Meagan Parker-Brooks, Paul Grossman, and Lorie Fontaine available to answer questions and share what works for them. I hope you can join us for one or both of these events.
