Teaching Commons presents: 'How to get from here to there'

DePaul students come from all over the world, from a variety of ethnic and racial backgrounds. Our students represent a diversity of ages, socioeconomic backgrounds and learning styles, including visual and auditory. Of course, we also have students with documented, and undocumented, disabilities. So how do we, as a university, meet the needs of all students and satisfy our mission of Vincentian personalism? 

On Feb. 28 and March 1, Teaching Commons will host workshops, titled "How to Get from Here to There: Providing Students with Multiple Access Points to Learning," that provide attendees with strategies on how to serve students who vary in age, ability and experience. The workshops are open to all faculty and staff. 

The workshops will provide an overview of disabilities among the DePaul student body and their experience based on relevant statistics. Teaching Commons also will also present an overview of the Center for Students with Disabilites program, the process for students to become eligible for accommodations and how to talk with a student who they feel may benefit from CSD services.
