(Please forgive the cross post -- you may have seen this on DSSHE or ICU)
Below,you will find information on two online professional development classes I willbe offering in September -- "Understanding Federal Mandates forOnline/Technology Access” and “What’s It All About? A Beginner’s Introduction to DSS.” The classes overlap in date of offering, but hopefully thatwon’t be a challenge for anyone but ME, as they are meant for very differentaudiences. Please let me know ifyou would like more information. Janie
InJune, I offered a mini-course for institutional personnel entitled,"Understanding Federal Mandates for Online/Technology Access." It was created in direct response to the FAQ from the Department of Education,disseminated on May 26, clarifying institutional obligations for access to newand emerging technology/use. Although there was less than 10 days betweenthe time I announced the class and the first day of the offering, 49institutions signed on and more than 300 higher education professionals"listened in" as we discussed these issues on a private listserv. BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND (!), I am planning to run the class again in September(12-16). I needed to get that information up front. Now let me tellyou WHY you should sit in on this class...
… Thisclass isn't meant for DSS providers. It is meant for everyone else atyour institution who needs to hear and understand that this isimportant/urgent/AND LEGALLY MANDATED. Of course, you (the DSS provider)will want to sit in on this class with your institutional colleagues, since YOUwill be the most knowledgeable individual on campus as to what this all means,and because we WANT you (the DSS provider) to be seen as the "residentexpert" so that they will start asking for your input and advice.
Becausethere is a "you-get-what-you-pay-for" mentality in higher education,I don't think the class should be offered for free, but I intend to make thisas painless as possible. The tuition will be $100. For that singlepayment, as many folks as you wish from your institution can be signed into theclass. Moreover, the money doesn't have to come from the DSS budget -- infact, it would be better if it DIDN'T come from your budget, but if someoneelse at the institution stepped up to this responsibility.

Iknow some of you have been waiting for (and asking for) information on theclass I am about to offer for "newbies" in the field (mentioned atthe AHEAD conference). I offered this last year and it was a huge hit, so-- "BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!!" -- we are going to try it again. Here's the beginning of the promo.
WHAT'S IT ALLABOUT?
A Beginner's Introduction to DSS
Online Education from DAIS -- September 14 - October 7
Doyou have a new hire on staff -- or are YOU the "new kid on theblock"? Whether it is someone who is new to the field of DSS, orsimply new to your institution, you will want to get them up to speed asquickly as possible. You need to make sure they have a basicunderstanding of the laws, the population, the general responsibilities - THEJOB - so that you can build on that to teach them how you interpret/implementall those tasks in your program.
DO YOU TRUST ME???
Ihope the answer is “YES!” I can provide your new staffmembers with an in-depth and working knowledge/understanding of what the worldof disability services in higher education is all about.
