"What about Us?" Exploring What It Means to Be a Management Educator with Asperger's Syndrome
Wright, Sarah; Kaupins, Gundars
Journal of Management Education, v42 n2 p199-210 Apr 2018
Very little is known on the subject of educators with Asperger's syndrome (AS), and the available information pales in comparison to the enormous literature studying students with AS. While there are many resources for engaging students with AS, and increasing awareness of how AS affects student learning, discussions about the implications for teaching and learning from the instructor's perspective are much harder to find. In this article, Professor Gundy Kaupins shares his thoughts and experiences related to the issues educators with AS face and offers an alternative lens to see the advantages that having AS can bring to the management education classroom. Professor Kaupins also offers ideas for behavioral solutions and considerations for future research. We finish with a commentary on the individual and institutional issues pertaining to disclosure of "differences" and invisible disability in the university classroom.
