We are running another section of Online Learning for Students who Learn Differently, July 10 – July 26.
How are the workshops structured?
Each workshop will be hosted on Canvas, our online learning system. Canvas works in any web browser and there are mobile apps available for iOS and Android devices. A few days before the beginning of the workshop, registrants will receive an email with information about how to access the workshop in Canvas.
Activities will include:
- Learning modules that include short lectures, video, and accessible texts delving into the core concepts of the workshop. Additional resources are also included if you want to dig deeper into topics that interest you.
- Live video conferences with workshop facilitator(s). Twice we will connect live through Canvas to discuss workshop topics and engage with questions that emerge from our work together. The conferences will be recorded for those who cannot join the live conversation. These provide an opportunity to connect with each other and extend our knowledge and understanding of the materials.
Who should participate?
Professionals who serve middle, high school, and college students in any capacity can benefit from this workshop. However, the content is geared towards supporting students who learn differently, including those with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, or executive function challenges. Workshops are designed to fit into the busy schedules of educators and other professionals.
How much time will it take?
Getting the most of out of each workshop will require about 10 hours of engagement over the two weeks of each workshop. With the exception of the live video chats, you can engage with the workshop materials at any time from anywhere with an internet connection. Please note: workshops are structured such that participants work through one week’s worth of material at a time over two weeks; however, we understand people have busy schedules and the particular two-week schedule of a workshop might not be feasible for all. Thus, material on the Canvas site (including recordings of the video discussions) will remain available on the Canvas site for five weeks from the start date.
Each workshop is $299 per person. If you register a group of 4 or more people for a single workshop, you will receive 10% off the total cost. Click an option below to register.
Note, the Online Learning for Students who Learn Differently is in progress. You may still register and join, as the content will remain available until August 23, 2020. However, do note the live video conference sessions may have already passed (July 15 and July 22), although recordings will be made available in the workshop Canvas site.

Online Learning for Students who Learn Differently: What Do We Currently Know and How Can We Become Better?
Today, online or remote learning is the new normal for most students in higher education. As all are learning to pivot quickly to meet the current demands, some are better prepared than others. It is often believed that the online platform is not “user friendly” to students who learn differently (LD), yet for the past seven years, Landmark College in Putney, VT, has been offering online courses to high school students with executive function (EF) challenges as part of their successful online dual enrollment program. Using our knowledge of LD student profiles and experience with online learning, this session will share information on: (1) current understanding of online/remote education and ways to ramp up to online, (2) learning needs of students with LD in online courses, (3) evidence-based best practices for online instruction—practical tips and strategies, and (4) changing accessibility needs, accommodations, processes, and protocol for online learning.
Live Video Discussions
For this workshop, two live video discussions will be held on:
Wednesday, July 15, 2020 from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Wednesday, July 22, 2020 from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Again, these will be recorded for later viewing if you're unable to attend the live session.
