Supporting Learning Among Students with Disabilities: A Team Effort
Please register by Monday, October 31
In this session Andrew Shoemaker, director of the Academic Achievement and Access Center (AAAC) and Amy Rossomondo, faculty member of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and CTE Faculty Fellow, will structure a frank discussion about how the AAAC and faculty can communicate more effectively in order to achieve the common goal of supporting successful learning among KU students with disabilities and learning challenges.  We will begin by discussing the accommodation request form that many faculty are asked to sign at the beginning of each semester. Faculty participants are encouraged to bring specific questions about the form and/or any other concerns that they would like to discuss with colleagues in an open and informal setting.

Teaching Across the Disciplines: A View from Music
Please register by Monday, November 14
In this talk, Brad Osborn (Assistant Professor, Music Theory) will share some strategies he's using for making courses relevant and accessible to a wide variety of students. In the first half of the talk, Brad will share how he's broadened the scope of a graduate-level course in music theory to include topics that require less prior knowledge about the discipline. In the second half, Brad will describe his process of carving out significant amounts of time to teach good writing skills within a required undergraduate music analysis course. Participants will be invited to consider how to apply this approach to their own discipline.
