Sooner or later, students will want to study or intern abroad through one of college's many international exchange offerings. It is possible and affordable to make study abroad experiences accessible for students with disabilities abroad with preparation. In this webinar, staff from MIUSA's National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange will equip one with the tools to be an advocate for access to all of the institution's programs by understanding the legal nuances and acting as the campus go-to expert on all things disability and exchange.

Do you ever feel like you are lost in space in your own classroom, looking for evidence of intelligent life? Workshop participants explore their current practices in the classroom that encourage critical thinking skills. After watching videos of and participating in hands-on examples of critical thinking exercises, workshop participants create their own exercises to ensure higher-level critical thinking among their students.

By the end of this workshop, participants know or are able to:

  • Clarify the meaning of critical thinking in higher education and employment environments, including the most recent research about employers’ desire for graduates who possess critical thinking skills.
  • Evaluate teaching “scenes” from a selection of film clips and identify common mistakes teachers make when trying to elicit critical thinking responses from students.
  • Review and apply the “Seven Valuable Intellectual Traits” identified by the Foundation for Critical Thinking.
  • Practice strategies that indicate evidence of critical thinking in the classroom and in assignments.
  • Observe and use Discussion Question Requirements, Diversity Day, Daily Exit Cards, the One-Minute Paper, the Interview Assignment, Annotation Station, and Question Fishbowl.

Participants receive a Certificate of Attendance upon completing the workshop.

The technical papers, presentations and events at this conference are focused on contributions to nurture, cultivate, enhance and accelerate the adoption of IoT technologies and applications for the benefit of humanity.  WF-IoT 2020 will include a multi-dimensional program of technical research papers, presentations, panels, workshops, tutorials and industry forum on the latest technology developments and innovations in many fields and disciplines that drive the utility and vitality of IoT solutions and applications.

With the plethora of assistive technology tools on the market today and the fact that each student is unique, finding the most effective assistive technology can be challenging. However, it is also the essential part of using technology to achieve access. Finding a tool that best fits a student can lead to increased student use and better support for students both in and outside of the classroom. Through discussion of the assistive technology implementation process, as well as methods and strategies, participants will learn effective means of assistive technology tool discovery, integration, and follow-up.

The ASME International Mechanical Engineering Education Leadership Summit (MEED), which launched in 1989, is the only conference specifically for mechanical engineering Chairs/Deans/Department Heads that addresses issues affecting the current and future state of engineering education. Join educators, industry, government and ASME representatives to network, foster partnerships and share ideas for effective educational initiatives to prepare students to enter the workforce post-graduation.

This Year’s Theme: Leading with Purpose: Meeting the Growing Demand of ME and MET Departments

Why Attend?

  • Learn about current pain points and trends in the mechanical engineering industry directly from leading government and industry organizations so that your institution can develop a ME curriculum that is relevant and up-to-date
  • Evaluate whether your mechanical engineering curriculum is currently providing the type of education necessary for students to be prepared when entering the workforce
  • Employ credible strategies learned from your fellow academic institutions to elevate your mechanical engineering curriculum
  • Enhance opportunities for workforce development by truly understanding the needs of the mechanical engineering industry and developing courses that provide the tools, skills and knowledge that students need to get a job and succeed in their career
  • Foster public-private research partnerships as well as university-industry partnerships which can save money and provide valuable application-based technology and software programs that mechanical engineering students need to have experience with to ensure they are prepared when entering the workforce
  • Hear from ASME leadership on how the Society’s strategies and initiatives are affecting mechanical engineering education

A tradition begun just last year, AHEAD is excited to host its second Legal Year webinar with Paul Grossman, retired OCR Chief Regional Attorney, again this spring. Bringing his extensive knowledge, unique perspective, and ability to present legal concepts in easily understandable terms, Paul will highlight current and upcoming issues that inform higher education disability services, including judicial decisions and settlements concerning self-injurious students, alternative media production, website access, and campus transit. He will also share insights concerning ESAs on campus.

Students with mental health conditions face unique challenges which may require support through skill-building, resource acquisition, accommodations and assistive technology. Assistive technology (AT) is any device, software, or equipment that supports a student to work with specific barriers. Schools are more adept at offering AT to students with disabilities in recent years but may find supporting students with mental health conditions challenging. AT and other accommodations may not be advertised to students with mental health conditions due to a lack of perceived legitimacy of functional implications associated with psychiatric conditions in higher education. In addition, students with mental health conditions may not believe that they deserve to receive or use AT. This webinar will explore the potential functional implications of mental health conditions in the post-secondary learning environment and detail the assistive technologies that can support student persistence and success.
