A recent series of articles in The Chronicle of Higher Education that “examines the challenges that students, academics, and colleges face in dealing with disability on campus”. These articles are for everyone who teaches or works with students at Langara, not just for Disability Services Offices or Facilities. The trends are also reflected in Langara’s student body.
If you attended the Designing for Student Success series at the end of August, you would have heard the same discussions. Missed the in-person sessions? Follow this series through the Chronicle. Selected titles include:
