Don’t Miss: A Disabilities in Adult Education Special Discussion!

Event Title: Adult Learners’ Awareness and Attitudes towards Disabilities

Event Type: Online Discussion in the LINCS Community

Date(s): August 10 – 13, 2015

Greetings, Members!

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.

Best regards,

The LINCS Community Team
