1:00-2:00 PM   The Inclusivity Training: Centering Your Teaching on the Intersection of Queerness and Disability. In this particular workshop, we will be focusing on the intersection of queerness and disability. Both identities can often be invisible, making inclusive teaching that much more important. During this session, you will develop tools to understand the systemic oppression enabled by homophobia, transphobia, and ableism and try to combat it. You will learn appropriate vocabulary, paths to effective allyship, and the skills to intervene in a classroom discussion if students or colleagues make mistakes regarding these issues. Presenter: Ariel Lesnick    
7:00-8:30 PM   Plenary Session: Dissertation in Practice Curriculum and Dissertation. Join faculty members for a discussion about the dissertation in practice curriculum and dissertation process.

12:00-1:00 PM   Supporting Your Students’ Mental Health     This networking roundtable provides participants the opportunity to join in a facilitated conversation with two higher education administrators that work professionally with mental health concerns. College students increasingly seek mental health services but due to high demand, traditional outlets for support like counseling centers are inaccessible or have long wait times between sessions. These mental health concerns can then pour over into other aspects of students’ lives that intersect with professional staff who maybe work with the student as a supervisor or an adviser. Professional staff may find themselves needing to counsel students through various mental health concerns, help identify if students are suicidal or pose a threat to themselves or others, or simply be the first sounding board for a student who is wrestling with transition concerns that threaten their success as students. Participants will engage on experiences and practices on their own campuses in trying to provide support to students with mental health concerns.   Presenters: Emily Bauer, Jeremy Bourgoin             The Education Entrepreneurship Incubator   In this rapid-prototyping design lab, we welcome individuals who have a dilemma, goal, objective, or idea that they are struggling to move forward with. Using a specific listen, ask, discuss, debrief protocol, this session will help attendees bring their idea into reality. This session is highly participatory, relying on the dilemmas and suggestions of attendees. It's also action oriented with the goal of helping attendees identify next steps to bring their goals to fruition.   Presenters: Michael Dunn, Matthew Downing, Julie Cook, Jeannine Dunn               Working on Research: Tips and Tricks to Make It Smoother   As we have gone through multiple research courses, we have each picked up our own ways of doing things. This round table is an opportunity for peers to share tips and tricks they have used conducting interviews, coding, writing a literature review, etc.   Presenter: Joseph Castelot             Investigating the Co-Teaching Relationship: A Roundtable Discussion   This virtual roundtable discussion will explore the dynamics of the co-teaching relationship. Facilitated by a general and special educator co-teaching pair, participants will engage in dialogue related to developing and nurturing the co-teaching relationship. Shared challenges, rewards, and experiences of educators who have co-taught will generate new ideas and perspectives to bring to current or future co-teaching relationships. Educators who have co-taught or are interested in learning more about co-teaching are encouraged to join this powerful conversation and investigate what it means to be in a successful co-teaching relationship.   Presenter: Amanda Castle, Stacy Linnehan

This is a brief presentation on what this type of learning can entail and a prospectus for a future study to investigate its efficacy for the development of non-academic skills for middle school students.   Presenter: Scott Silver-Bonito               Post-doctoral Career Planning: Exploring Impact and Possibilities:   Identifying career goals and making a plan increases the chance of success.
