Tips from Faculty: Engaging Students with Intellectual Disability Enrolled in College Courses


This event ended. 

The video recording, transcript, info packet, and PowerPoint slides are available here.

This webinar will focus on how faculty support students with intellectual disability enrolled in their college courses. Two professors share their experiences in supporting students with intellectual disability enrolled in college success and leadership classes and the importance of having a support system in place to aid our students inside and outside the classroom. Adjusted assignments and assessments will be discussed that support students’ development. Join us to explore the challenges and rewards involved in engaging students with intellectual disability enrolled in college courses. Participants will brainstorm how they might incorporate similar mechanisms to support students with similar needs. 

If this webinar left you wondering more or you find yourself with some follow-up questions, join us for "Unfinished Business" on Friday, November 12 at 12pm EST. We'll take about 45 minutes to entertain questions and have conversation about engaging students in the college classroom. Join here:
