On-line Training for Faculty and Staff
Utah State University ASD Project On-line Training "Accommodating Students with Disabilities in Higher Education"
This computer-based course is intended to develop an awareness about accommodating students with disabilities. In your role as faculty, there is a little background information that may be helpful. Studies have shown that students with disabilities can participate in higher education and compete favorably with other students. To sign up for this free on-line class, please go to http://www.ocean.edu/campus/student_services/drc/asd/ and follow the instructions to register.
DARE To Care is a FREE, Web-based, interactive multimedia simulative training program in which faculty learn to identify and handle disabled student issues in their on-campus and distance learning classes. The Faculty Training is content-rich, based on educationally sound learning principles, and can be accessed from any internet-connected computer at http://dare.lbcc.edu. In a multi-year pilot program at Long Beach City College in California, faculty indicated that DARE to Care training provided them with information to make the accommodation process easier, and predicted positive future experiences in providing accommodations.
