GPDE5654B: Disability Studies in Education Conference  (3 cr.)
Please Note: Additional registration for the actual DSE Conference is required. The Disability Studies in Education Conference celebrates the intersectionality of disability studies with multiple areas of education and inclusion. This conference is for individuals who want to become better teachers, professionals, or activists for educating, engaging with, and advocating for people who have disabilities with a specific focus on early childhood through postsecondary educational settings. The 2017 Disability Studies in Education Conference will look at disability studies from three intersecting perspectives: Universal Design for Learning; American Indian Education; and Disability Studies in Education Research Theory, and Scholarship.

• How can we acknowledge and ground ourselves through opportunities to promote inclusive educational practices? Who does inclusion benefit?

• What openings does a Universal Design for Learning approach offer education?

• How can understanding American Indian education support disability studies scholarship?

• How can stirrings and wonderings across these three strands build powerful, creative educational approaches? What do we need to know, do, and explore in order to change the field of education?

• Entire Conference (if pre-registered and paid by April 15, 2017): $175 per person
• Entire Conference (after April 15, 2017 and at-the-door registration): $200 per person)
• One-day Only: $75 per person (this option not available for graduate credit)
