Academic Learning Community Formed on 'Students with Disabilities in Postsecondary Settings'
The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce what we hope will be the first of many Academic Learning Communities. Professor Diana LaRocco, Department of Educational Leadership in the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions, and colleagues from Education, Physical Therapy, and Student Affairs are forming a Learning Community on the topic of Students with Disabilities in Postsecondary Settings.
Learning Communities for faculty and staff are an important component of creating a vibrant intellectual commons at the University; creating time and space for intellectual discussion, inquiry, and action is both a challenge and a necessity. In addition, there are any number of tangible outcomes from such communities that would be exciting and beneficial, including reviews of best practice, scholarship in the areas of teaching and learning and application, in-house workshops, and guest speakers.
The Office of the Provost provides modest assistance in the form of securing space for meetings, offering light refreshments, and publicizing events.
For more information on the Academic Learning Community on Students with Disabilities in Postsecondary Settings, contact Professor LaRocco at firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty members interested in forming other Learning Communities can contact Fred Sweitzer, assistant provost and dean of faculty development, at email@example.com.
