Spring 2023 Sessions

Autism Without Limits

Autism is among fastest-rising disability profiles, occurring across every racial, ethnic, and Socioeconomic Stats (SES) group. According to the CDC one in 44 children are now identified with autism; a number that is likely underestimated. This multi-session event will help participants begin the journey to embracing, understanding, and supporting neurodiverse and autistic students. Join us as we explore what it means to learn and understand the world through an autistic lens and discover how we can use this knowledge to support all students.

Date: March 13, 2023     8:00 AM - Noon

Location: Reeve 306 and online via Zoom

Higher Education and the Sustainable Development Goals in Collaboration with the Autonomous of the State of Hidalgo in Mexico

This series of five online workshops will focus on the role of universities in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted by the United Nations to address complex and interconnected environmental, social, and economic challenges. We will also explore how engaging with the SDGs can improve universities themselves, making them more equitable, collaborative, and sustainable. Each workshop will begin with an overview of one or two of the SDGs, followed by a brief presentation by one or more of our UWO colleagues about work they do that relates to the workshop’s theme. Then, workshop participants will be invited to delve further into the opportunities and challenges associated with integrating the SDGs into our universities and our own work as scholars, educators, and higher education professionals. This is a unique opportunity to communicate across cultures about global issues and higher education.

Dates: March 2, March 31, April 27, May 26, June 22     Time: Varies - see details page for information

Introduction to Inclusive Teaching

Teaching strategies that emphasize structured active learning can create more equitable classrooms and improve learning for all students. As an introduction to inclusive teaching techniques, Professors Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy of the University of North Carolina will ask participants to reflect on inequities and diversity in their classrooms through interactive, hands-on activities. After providing a framework for inclusive design and their own research results, Hogan and Sathy will lead participants through active learning exercises and case studies that explore inclusive techniques. Drawing upon their own teaching experiences and educational research, they will model approaches that can be readily implemented with any discipline or class size to help all students achieve their potential
