SDDL Faculty Professional Development

College classrooms are becoming increasingly diverse, with students with disabilities attending college in greater numbers than ever before. Yet many college instructors have little background or training in how to effectively teach diverse learners. Students with Disabilities as Diverse Learners (SDDL) is a federally funded project administered by the Center on Disability Studies at the University of Hawai‘i. SDDL provides Professional Development Trainings to college faculty for teaching students with disabilities and other diverse learners, with the goal of improving student retention and matriculation rates.

SDDL staff also offer the opportunity for instructional faculty (professors, instructors, lecturers, graduate assistants) within the UH system to participate in a faculty study evaluating the Professional Development training.

More details about the faculty study are in the documents available for download on this page.
