New Directions in Faculty Development
Shaw, Stan F.; Scott, Sally S.
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v17 n1 p3-9 Fall 2003
This special issue of the "Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability" presents information on faculty development regarding students with disabilities in postsecondary settings. Each of the articles relates to the work emanating from the Demonstration Projects to Ensure Students with Disabilities Receive a Quality Higher Education funded by Title VII, Part D, of the Higher Education Amendments of 1988. The purpose of these projects was to develop and implement professional development and technical assistance activities designed to provide faculty and administrators in institutions of higher education the skills and supports needed to help students with disabilities to succeed. This special issue aims to promote awareness of the projects and help postsecondary personnel get an in-depth understanding of the training programs and products developed and available at several exemplary sites. In order to appreciate the significance of these projects, it is important to examine the context for this timely federal initiative supporting college students with disabilities.
