Grace May, Ph.D.
Diverse Learners: Explorers, Problem Solvers & Dot Connectors
As part of her attendance at the Senate Committee Technology and Innovation Retreat, Dr. May will develop two Digital Humanities based activities for the freshman level course, CPSY1001: Diverse Learners and Their Families, Part I, that will aid students in developing skills associated with the future as explorers, problem solvers, and dot connectors. An example of “dot connection” is found in the geo-political “PolicyMap” activity to understand the presence and services available for persons with disabilities throughout the state. The use of the tool PolicyMap will augment students’ ability to question data on the presence and availability of services for persons with disabilities in NJ as well as identify relationships in the often disconnected content.
