Event Title: Adult Learners’ Awareness and Attitudes towards Disabilities
Event Type: Online Discussion in the LINCS Community
Date(s): August 10 – 13, 2015
From August 10 – 13, 2015, join us in the Disabilities in Adult Education group to explore the topics of disability-related attitudes and awareness in adult education settings. A day-by-day outline of topics to be addressed during each of the four days of this event is as follows:
Day 1 – An exploration of disabilities awareness and how adult learners access disabilities-related information;
Day 2 – A deep dive into participant awareness of their adult learners’ knowledge of accommodations, and if it differs if the adults are English language learners;
Day 3 – An exchange of ideas from the 2012 National Alliance on Mental Illness survey: College Students Speak: A Survey Report on Mental Health; and
Day 4 – An introduction to the 2014 PIAAC study: Adult Transitions to Learning.
