Introduction to Neurodivergence: Strategies for Engineering Instructors

“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, someone whose brain processes information in a way that is not typical of most individuals. In this workshop, participants will explore the concepts of neurodiversity and neurodivergence, gain a deeper understanding of the obstacles that neurodivergent students might encounter in engineering courses, and identify strategies for better-supporting students in the classroom.

This session is part of the 2024 Engineering Education Innovation (EEI) Days
