DSP Open Forum for Faculty: Administering Accommodations

July 12, 2018, 3:00pm
Registration is unavailable.
DSP is hosting a series of three open forums for faculty this summer. This will give us an opportunity to both share information with faculty and also get feedback from faculty to help us improve our processes. This second forum will focus on the administration of accommodations including attendance accommodations and deadline accommodations.

DSP Open Forums

The Disabled Students' Program (DSP) works in partnership with faculty to accommodate students with disabilities. In this discussion series, we will highlight topics requested by faculty to share information and gather feedback about how to make our processes work better.

The forums will take place at the following dates and times:

Disabled Students' Program (DSP)

DSP is under the umbrella of the Equity and Inclusion division, as disability is a part of the diversity fabric. While the primary focus and mission of DSP is to serve documented disabled students, DSP staff also work closely with faculty, as well as administrators and staff to build a more accessible learning environment. The DSP staff outreach benefits not only DSP students, but also other students who could benefit, but may not have self-identified need for accommodations such as wounded warriors, who may not even be aware of their disability rights.

Teaching in Troubled Times

Beginning in Spring 2018 and co-hosted by the American Cultures Center, the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Division for Equity and Inclusion, and the AIS, this dialogue series explores how our classrooms and student experiences are differentially impacted by external factors at the local, regional, and national levels.

CTL Teaching Dialogues

Now in its fifth year, the Teaching Dialogues series is a regular campus-wide discussion on pressing topics related to teaching and learning, hosted by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Academic Senate's Committee on Teaching.

All faculty, graduate students, and academic staff are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Algorithmic Bias in Search and Research

May 8, 2018
As part of the Designing for Digital Literacy Series co-presented by the AIS, the Library, and the College Writing Program, a group of instructors, staff and librarians gathered on April 18, 2018 to discuss the implications of algorithmic bias for student research and learning. Librarian Cody Hennesy kicked off the conversation by outlining Safiya Noble’s research on how popular platforms such as Google and Facebook engage in technological redlining. This kind of work provides opportunities to help students connect discussions about scholarly resources with issues of bias and point of view in the broader information landscape.
