Fall 2021: Access Moves in the Pandemic Classroom: aka, Stuff I’m Trying Out

Facilitated by Dr. Margaret Price, this workshop is intended for anyone (student, instructor, and/or staff) who routinely thinks about how to make classrooms more accessible post-pandemic. Drawing upon her research in disability studies and higher education, Margaret shares three key themes she’s been thinking about (presence, participation, and timing) and introduces her “rhetorical triangle” of access (novicehood, expertise, and intimacy). This workshop is co-hosted by the Michael V. Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning.

Fall 2020: #DisabledNotDisposable: Access, Inclusion and Disability in Medicine and Health Care

Facilitated by Dr. Evelyn Hoglund, this workshop is an open educational discussion with a panel of people with various disabilities talking about their needs and experiences when accessing health care and health care-related services. This event helps both students and professionals in better understanding:

  • Barriers experienced by disabled people when accessing health care
  • How to create more accessible environments on an individual and systemic basis

In this period of pandemic and health care crisis, the needs of disabled clients and patients are often overlooked, making this conversation even more important today. We warmly invite you to join us for this opportunity to engage in dialog with our knowledgeable disabled panelists, learn directly from their experiences, and develop a more holistic view of future patients/clients.

Registration for the workshop is free. Live captioning services (not auto-captions) are provided at the event. For more information about the event, please contact Evelyn Hoglund ( Note: In the interest of enabling open dialogue between disabled people and health-services students, this workshop was not recorded.
