Dr. Allison Lombardi and Emily Tarconish, a CBER student researcher, received a CETL (Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning) mini grant for their project "Assessing the Impact of Disability-Awareness Videos on Faculty Member’s Teaching Effectiveness" .

According to Dr. Lombardi, this project will test the effectiveness of disability-awareness videos that were designed to improve faculty members' awareness of the experiences of college students with disabilities, familiarity with available supports for these students, and tools and strategies that promote inclusive teaching. Specifically, they will use a validated survey to measure the effects of the videos on changes in faculty members' disability-related self-efficacy, a concept that encompasses general disability knowledge, familiarity with disability-related supports and principles of universal design, as well as feeling prepared to share this information with other faculty members. Participants will complete pre and post surveys, measuring disability-related self-efficacy before and after and viewing the five videos.
