This event is intended for women faculty.

CREW will be hosting and facilitating monthly brown-bag meetings with discussion topics of interest to women faculty called "crew connections." The purpose of these sessions is to provide an opportunity for women faculty to network, build skills and develop strategies for career success.

The October session will focus on teaching.  There is a deaf or hard-of-hearing student in your classroom.  Or, maybe there are five, ten, twenty, or thirty students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.  What should you do? What shouldn't you do?

In this CREW Connections session, we will discuss strategies and best practices for teaching in a classroom with students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, whether there is one student or many more.  A panel of faculty who are accomplished in working with deaf or hard-of-hearing students will share their experiences and offer guidance to faculty who attend.  A significant part of the hour will be designated for discussion and Q&A.  Faculty are invited to bring their questions and concerns.  Faculty are also welcome to email specific questions to Dr. Bonnie Jacob at bcjntm@rit.edu prior to the event to have the questions added to the agenda.

FOR QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS EVENT, PLEASE CONTACT BETSY DELL AT EMDMET@RIT.EDU
