Supporting ADHD Learners
In this ninety-minute, interactive webinar, facilitator Karen Costa will host a discussion of strategies to support ADHD learners including students, faculty, and staff. You'll learn about different ways of understanding ADHD, how to integrate a strengths-based, challenge-aware approach that will benefit all learners, and you'll have a chance to brainstorm solutions with Karen and your colleagues. The one-hour webinar will be followed by a 30-minute Q & A session. Join us to learn together about how we can better support this underserved and often misunderstood group of learners.
How Ungrading Can Work For You
Ungrading can sometimes look like an enormous undertaking, but it isn't an all or nothing proposition. This workshop will explain why ungrading is a powerful pedagogical practice, and suggest concrete steps you can take to move toward more feedback and fewer grades in your courses. You'll leave this webinar with a plan for taking your first step into ungrading, and learn about the range of resources available to you as you plan for future endeavors.
