Over the past few years, it seems there has been an increase in the number of disabled students coming to disability offices with a history of having received “extra time for assignments” as an accommodation. Students who seek this accommodation are often either students with disabilities affecting focus or reading, including ADHD, LD, Autism, and TBI, or students with chronic health conditions who may miss assignment deadlines due to an exacerbation of their condition. Many received this accommodation in high school and expect it to continue in postsecondary education. However, is this accommodation always reasonable in college settings? This webinar will broadly explore when this accommodation is--and is not--reasonable, relative to our institutional responsibilities of equal access, equal opportunity, and nondiscrimination. It will also touch on the college’s significant obligations to work with faculty and students to implement it, when it is approved. This is the first of a two-part series: the second webinar will include a panel of disability professionals from a variety of school types and office sizes describing how they evaluate and implement accommodations that require interaction with faculty.

Successfully diversifying STEM education requires a deep understanding of the lived experiences of underrepresented students as they navigate systems that were often not created with them in mind. Numbers only tell part of the story of the challenges these students face while pursuing higher education and thus hold a limited understanding of the solution to diversifying STEM education.

This webinar focuses on how inclusive qualitative data gathering methods can honor the complexity of the challenges in diversifying the STEM workforce. Webinar participants will better understand the power that qualitative insights hold in identifying challenges in access to quality education, patterns in utilization of services, and potential solutions that students self-formulate to navigate educational environments. These insights can then be harnessed to create more equitable learning environments where underrepresented students can thrive. Participants will learn to identify opportunities when qualitative evaluation can be advantageous in promoting the success of underrepresented students in STEM education.

Go beyond focusing solely on presenting yourself as the optimal candidate and utilize the interview to determine if an internship/job opportunity is a “Good Fit” for you! In this workshop you’ll gain strategies to clarify your career and educational goals and frame questions to obtain accurate information to assess if a workplace will support those goals, while also learning to recognize potential misalignments. 

Learning outcomes: 

  • Define what a ‘bad fit' or 'toxic work environment’ is 
  • Outline and clarify your own goals before the interview 
  • Use questions during an interview to determine whether a workplace is in alignment with your goals and values 
  • Articulate strategies and practice language to frame questions 
  • Describe examples of verbal and non-verbal red flags indicating the opportunity may not be a “Good Fit” 
  • Describe factors that can make it difficult to recognize and weigh the potential impact of red flags during and after an interview

The ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) is driven by, for and with the community. After 3 years of virtual meetings, 2023 ASMCUE will be co-located with Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minoritized Scientists (ABRCMS) in Phoenix, Ariz. The ASMCUE conference will take place over a 3-day period and is expected to bring together educators from all over the world for an immersive experience. Attendees will gather to learn classroom strategies, hear biology education research updates and meet new colleagues who teach the same classes.

Rather than a theme for ASMCUE content this year, the ASMCUE Planning Committee established a “subtitle” that welcomes attendees back to the in-person experience for the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of ASMCUE: Gap Junctions: Reconnecting Our Community for Diffusion of Ideas. This name reflects the mission, experience and emotions of ASMCUE.
