Back by popular demand: this was another one of our most well-received sessions at this year's Annual Institute, and we are excited to have Jamie Lerner-Brecher again share her advice, experience, and best-practices with the Reacting community.
Jamie Lerner-Brecher discusses questions of accessibility, how to incorporate principles of Universal Design into your syllabi, and the ways that Reacting already aligns with and supports Universal Design principles.
Facilitator Jamie Lerner-Brecher is a disability studies scholar-activist. She holds a master's degree in Disability Studies from the CUNY School of Professional Studies (SPS) and a bachelor's degree from Columbia University, where she graduated summa cum laude. Jamie currently works on a grant-funded project that aims to create, implement, and research the effects of disability training on college professors. Jamie's other current research studies include: a paper on how Universal Design in Higher Education (UDHE) benefits students with learning disabilities, mapping UDHE principles to Reacting to the Past pedagogy, and researching best teaching practices for autistic students in Reacting classes.
