Murray, Christopher; Wren, Carol T.; Stevens, Edward B.; Keys, Christopher
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v22 n2 p117-129 2009
This article presents a model demonstration project that was designed to promote disability awareness, understanding, and responsiveness among University faculty and staff at a large private University. One of the unique features of the Productive Learning u Strategies (PLuS) project is that the effort targeted all faculty and staff through a cascade training model approach. This approach was designed to leverage project resources in ways that allowed the project to reach a broader number of individuals. The effort was supported by a web site, bi-monthly print materials, and informational videos that were developed by the project and widely distributed. This article provides an overview of the model, a description of the specific model features, and an overview of findings from several investigations that were conducted during the course of project implementation. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
