About EDSP 200 OL1

Special Education: Global Disability Studies EDSP 200 OL1 (CRN: 61857) 3 Credit Hours The main concept of this course is to present students with broader views of disability, advocacy, and communication in the traditional African context through the voices and experiences of African disability rights advocates globally. Our primary goal is to explore how disability is viewed across cultures in Africa to empower and to offer opportunities for students to compare, contrast, and conceptualize what they learn for use advocacy and systemic change. It also has the goal to explore a supportive pathway into educational systems and community life for immigrant and refugee students in K-12 schools and post-secondary programs. You will be challenged to read thoroughly outside the American context to expand your world view and then analyze your own cultural experiences in the light of global diversity and diversity in VT and the U.S.A.
