March 18 Minds That Matter Session CANCELLED

NEW Winter 2020 Faculty Professional Development Series that focuses on teaching strategies for mental health and learning issues in the classroom.

College campuses across the United States are grappling with rising numbers of students who experience a range of mental health challenges and learning differences.

Faculty using traditional teaching methods may inadvertently structure courses that add difficulty for these students.  The Minds That Matter faculty development sessions will facilitate deeper understanding regarding the nature of these issues, alongside teaching strategies and course design based in the universal design for learning (UDL).  Panel presenters are campus experts including faculty, clinicians, staff, and students.

Register for Minds that Matter Today!

Panel members will share:

  • Description of the mental health issue
  • Examples of how the issue manifests in the classroom
  • Recommended UDL teaching strategies
  • GVSU student(s) presentation of classroom experiences
  • Review of Campus Resources
  • Questions and discussion

PARTICIPANTS CAN CHOOSE TO ATTEND THE SESSION IN-PERSON OR ONLINE.

Register using our online Minds That Matter Registration Form and indicate whether you'll be attending in-person or online.  Only those who register will receive the link to the LIVE STREAM of the program. Attend right from the comfort of your home or office!
