Planning and Conducting a Workshop on Career Access: Science and Engineering for Students with Disabilities. Planning Guide. Model Undergraduate Project for the Disabled: A Study of Issues Involved in Underrepresentation.
National Association for Industry - Education Cooperation, Buffalo, NY.
Many are concerned that America will not have a sufficient supply of scientists and engineers in the workforce for the 21st century. Five regional workshops were held to provide a forum for all those concerned with issues involved in the underrepresentation in science and engineering of students with disabilities. This document is one of two documents that was distributed through the participating national organizations. It is a "how-to" manual based upon the project's prototype model. The guide explains the format, procedures, and rationale for the model workshop. The guide includes a listing of key points to be made in panel presentations, identifies resources, and identifies prospective participants and discusses how to recruit them. Seven appendices include a workshop evaluation form, a list of materials and organizations, and a workshop planning checklist. (ZWH)
