Two cohorts – made up of 20 students each – will receive full tuition from the five-year grant. The courses, taught by special education faculty including Associate Teaching Professor Liana Gonzalez and Research Associate Professor Rosalia Gallo, will be in online formats giving the program a more significant impact state-wide.
“It is our hope that we can provide specialized instruction in using multi-tiered systems of support to novice and out-of-field teachers who work with students with disabilities who are from racially, ethnically and linguistically diverse backgrounds,” said Elizabeth Cramer, professor and lead principal investigator.
Each cohort will meet in Orlando during the summer for hands-on training and networking. Additional information is available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Special Education Programs is an initiative within the U.S. Department of Education to improve outcomes for children with disabilities by ensuring access to fair, equitable, and high-quality education and services.
