Project Access includes principles in Universal Design for Learning (UDL), as well as instructs best practices for working specifically with deaf and hard of hearing students. 

This experiential workshop enables participants to gain an understanding of how deaf students experience a mainstreamed classroom, and provides real-life strategies and extensive on-line resources that will help teachers and faculty modify their teaching to provide greater access for students by:

  • Sensitizing educators to challenges faced by deaf and hard-of-hearing students in a mainstream environment
  • Presenting effective use of support service personnel (sign language interpreters, notetakers, tutors, and captionists)
  • Preparing individual teaching strategy plans
  • Assisting in mastering strategies to meet the goals of Universal Design in education

Project Access shares best practices for instruction for the benefit of all students in the classroom.

The Writing in the Disciplines workshop is designed to provide STEM faculty at both the secondary and post-secondary levels with strategies for including a variety of writing activities in their courses. Workshop participants learn how to add writing practice to their STEM courses that will help students improve their writing and at the same time enhance their learning in the discipline.

Topics include:

  • Why writing matters - the theoretical underpinnings
  • The role of informal and low-stakes writing both in and out of class
  • Building a formal writing product using scaffolding techniques
  • Developing meaningful rubrics for evaluating writing products
  • Providing students with feedback on their writing in the context of a STEM classroom
  • Sharing writing-related resources on the DeafTEC website

Each workshop participant will leave with a plan for developing a writing assignment that provides students with writing practice and the tools to provide constructive feedback.

Attend SPIE Photonics West 2018, the world's largest annual event for the photonics, laser, and biomedical optics industries.

Join thousands of your peers – scientists, engineers, and executives – at the most comprehensive technical conference and exhibition spanning biophotonics for brain research and healthcare, lasers for research and advanced manufacturing, sensors and camera systems, imaging and displays, communications and optoelectronics, plus the core optical components that enable many of today’s consumer products.

Community college workforce and economic development efforts, now more than ever, require collaboration and cooperation across policies, practices, initiatives, partners, and funders. These critical intersections serve to build a sustainable, inclusive and forward thinking workforce. Further intersecting is the work our professional community does with foundation, industry, and federal partners in effectively serving our students.


Please join us at AACC’s Workforce Development Institute 2018: Exploring Intersections. We welcome attendees to explore their own intersections and create new ones while sharing best practices and promising solutions as we build a nation of learners.
