Event Description

Please join us for day two of the workshop. We welcome Professor Daniel Maier, who will teach us about deaf culture, and give us introductory American Sign Language lessons. We will then visit the Office of Disability Services, where we will tour the AccessAbility Center, learn about assistive technologies used by our students, and meet our campus service dog. For CPACC, WAS, and CPWA certified staff who need continuing accessibility education credits to maintain certification, it provides up to 15 hours of credits. 

As a separate event, participants are also invited to a free screening of the film CODA.

Sessions will begin each day at 8:30 AM and end at 5:00 PM.

MASKS ARE REQUIRED for this event, and must be worn unless eating, drinking, or for an ASL exercise.

Lunch and snacks will be served. There is plenty of space for outdoor eating and social distancing while eating.

You must register by June 30.
