ACCOMMODATING OR PANDERING: A Frank Discussion with Student Disability Services
Monday, October 22, 2012
4.00 - 5.00 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett Center 316
Light refreshments provided.

Do accommodations for students with disabilities give an unfair advantage in the classroom? Do such accommodations lower academic standards? Are we doing students a disfavor by offering what might not be available when they go out into the “real world?” At what point do accommodations cross the line and become unreasonable?

This session is intended to be a frank and open dialogue among faculty members and Student Disability Services staff members Linda Uhll, Robin Dubovi, and Jean Celeste-Astorina.

Registration is encouraged, but not necessary.

First meeting: Tuesday, October 23, 12.10-1.05 pm. Brown bag. You bring the food, we provide the beverages and cookies.

Faculty Show and Share is a series put on by the Center for Educational Technology in collaboration with the Center for Faculty Excellence. Each session features a guest faculty member who shows how they use a technology to address a teaching goal. Come hear what worked - or didn't work in a format that is informal, experimental, and fun. Discussion is encouraged and anyone is welcome regardless of their experience with technology.

We are always looking for faculty to show and share. Please contact Marilyn Dispensa (mdispensa@ithaca.edu or 274-3647) if you are interested.

FACULTY DEVELOPMENT MODELS IN AN INTERNATIONAL CONTEXT
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
1:00 p.m.

Presented by Jari Aho
Jari is a lecturer at JAMK University in Jyvaskyla, Finland, and is a leader in Faculty Development both in his native country and internationally. He comes to IC as part of a faculty exchange agreement with JAMK University.

Those of us who teach at IC are experts in our disciplines, but have to learn how to translate our expertise into effective teaching. This is a challenge faced everywhere in higher education. Jari will explain the approach used in Finland to help disciplinary experts become expert teachers. Can we adapt aspects of the Finnish model to Ithaca College? After his presentation, Jari will lead a discussion with members of the Faculty Development Committee.

Schedules permitting, you are invited to attend part or this entire event.
