Our 2017 – 2018 webinar offerings:
Spring I. Destination Education: Supporting Students with Learning Differences in the College Search
Are you interested in supporting students with learning differences during the college search process? In this presentation a former admission officer (and a current Landmark College Institute for Research and Training staff member) will discuss tips that you can use to assist your students with learning differences as they face common college search obstacles.
Presenter: Adam Lalor, Ph.D., Lead Educational Specialist
Date: Friday, March 2, 2018, 2 – 3 p.m. (EST)
Spring II. Landmark College and Microsoft: Accessibility Tools for Enhanced Study Skills
This unique webinar is a co-presentation between Landmark College and the Microsoft Accessibility team. This presentation will present Microsoft accessibility tools along with specific strategies for using these tools to complete college level academic tasks – based on 30 plus years of Landmark College pedagogical approaches for teaching students with LD and ADHD. The webinar will illustrate accessibility within reach, as these tools are integrated in the MS office suite of applications you (and your students) are likely already using. Participants will learn ways to not only support students with reading and writing accessibility needs, but also ways to improve the availability and efficiency of using these tools.
Presenters: Mike Tholfsen, Principal Product Manager for Microsoft Education
Rick Bryck, Ph.D., Senior Academic Researcher, Landmark College
Date: Friday, April 27, 2018, 2 – 3 p.m. (EDT)
Fall I. Manipulatives for High School and College STEM: How Non-Mathematicians Can Support Students’ Comprehension and Computation
Manipulatives are commonly used in elementary education to introduce concepts to students in the math and science classroom, but as students progress in their education these tools are typically phased out. This session will provide a framework and some examples for the use of manipulatives to support struggling learners at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Participants will learn how they can facilitate students developing a better understanding of key concepts and gaining proficiency in computation in these STEM disciplines.
Fall II. Aiding the Executive Function “Conductor”: Practical Strategies for Student EF
We will explore the metaphor of Executive Function (EF) as orchestra conductor. Namely, EF helps increase functions that are too quiet (“activation”), it tamps down sections that are too loud (“inhibitory control”), and it keeps track of the timing and content of all the individual players (“working memory”). That is a lot of work to handle, and sometimes the conductor needs help—practical tools for supporting students in these three domains of EF (activation, inhibition, and working memory) will be demonstrated in this webinar.
