Introduction to Neurodivergence: Strategies for Engineering Instructors

Session Format: Remote synchronous (Zoom)

Intended Audience: Faculty, Graduate Students, Postdocs, UG Instructional Assistants, Admin/Staff

Facilitator(s): Patricia Jaimes

Session Abstract: “Neurodiversity” describes how people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways. The term “neurodivergent” is often associated with individuals with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, or more generally, those whose brains process information in ways that are not typical of most individuals. In this workshop, participants will explore the concept of neurodiversity, gain a deeper understanding of the obstacles that neurodivergent students might encounter in engineering courses, and identify strategies for supporting neurodivergent students in the classroom.
