Diversity in Higher Education- Starting the Discussion
Recorded On: 12/06/2018
This workshop will teach educators how to incorporate diverse cultural perspectives in their classrooms by utilizing diverse historical materials, videos, presenters, and experiences. Educators will learn how to analyze their thoughts surrounding cross-cultural information, people, and perspectives. They will learn now to discuss culturally relevant issues for Deaf and hearing People of Color (POC) communities and how they can teach their students how that information may impact the interpreting process and consumer satisfaction.
