Dorothy Osterholt and Sophie Lampard Dennis showcased an original concept poster titled “World of Learners Wheel” during their session, “Assessing and Addressing Student Barriers: Implications for Today’s College Classroom,” at the Landmark College Summer Institute on June 25.
One of the key elements of Landmark College’s approach to serving students who learn differently is to focus on each student’s academic strengths. This philosophy took center stage at the 2014 Landmark College Summer Institute, titled “Cerebrodiversity: Teaching and Learning from Strengths.” Over 75 educators and professionals from around the country joined dozens of Landmark College faculty and staff members for four days of talks and workshops focused on building on the gifts of a diversity of learners.
Landmark College announced today that it will receive a $1 million gift from noted economist Paul McCulley, an executive with the Pacific Investment Management Company (PIMCO) and the father of 2014 Landmark College graduate Jonathan McCulley. (Paul and Jonathan McCulley are pictured, right.) The funding will create the new Morgan le Fay Center for Advances in Business and Entrepreneurship Instruction. The center will be located at Landmark College and will support development and refinement of a progressive pedagogy for students with learning difficulties (LD) in the fields of business, economics and entrepreneurship, as well as research, training and related innovations for educators in the field of LD.
Linda Hecker, LCIRT Lead Education Specialist, and Anne M. Fein, Associate Professor in the First Year Studies Department, published an article titled “Digital Note-Taking: Helping You Get It and Keep It Together.” The piece appeared in the April 2014 issue of Attention magazine, the official publication of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD).
Cerebrodiversity: Working from Strengths is the title of the 2014 Landmark College Summer Institute for educators, professionals, and parents, held in beautiful Putney, Vermont. Hosted by the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT), the research and professional development arm of the College, the Summer Institute provides critical perspectives and hands-on workshops on pedagogy, learning strategies and technologies to improve education for students who learn differently. The Summer Institute will take place on June 24 to 27, 2014.
