Are you a current or prospective teacher wanting to learn more about working with students who have a disability? The Midwest Inclusive Post Secondary Alliance (MIPSA) Conference will be held on Nov. 4 at Missouri State University.
Several Missouri State faculty and staff members will present:
- Dr. David Hough, dean of the College of Education
- Dr. Chris Craig, deputy provost
- Wes Pratt, chief diversity officer
- Stacy Rice, senior instructional designer in the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning
- Kim Roam, clinical instructor in the childhood education and family studies department
- Rachel Heinz, director of Bear POWER
Edie Cusack, a guest speaker from the College of Charleston, will be leading a two-hour faculty training.
About the conference
The MIPSA Conference will provide resources and training for faculty. Topics will include working with students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the classroom on a college campus.
Bear POWER is hosting the conference and program director, Heinz, will be presenting.
“I hope that faculty can take away tools and resources for working with students who have a disability,” Heinz said. “Faculty will learn about supporting inclusion using universal design approaches that will benefit all learners in the classroom.”
