Dartmouth Designs to Teach the Whole Student



1:00pm - 2:00pm ET


DCAL's Accessible Dartmouth Initiative team is honored to host guest speaker Lillian Nave in this virtual session.

Who are our students? How can we leverage the diversity and variability of the Dartmouth student body to create richer, more nuanced educational environments using a strength-based, talent-focused approach? Based on Universal Design for Learning principles and through the lens of learner variability, we will examine how to teach the whole student and decrease friction without reducing rigor. In doing so, we will align with Dartmouth's values and vision to create a "vibrant, inclusive learning environment" that "embraces diversity" in a collaborative community.
