The Ohio Partnership for Excellence in Paraprofessional Preparation (OPEPP), a project within the University of Cincinnati Systems Development & Improvement Center, is providing several online workshops this fall to assist districts in using paraprofessional services more effectively in order to support student learning. Workshops are open to all districts and schools and would be especially useful for educator teams.

Developing the knowledge and practicing the skills of cultural competency enable all district personnel to relate to people and groups who are culturally diverse, which is critical for the success of all learners. This workshop is designed for all school and district staff as it addresses basic knowledge and skills that are foundational to developing cultural competency. Participants will:

• learn about the meaning of culture and cultural competency;
• explore how their cultural identity informs their cultural perspective and influences their
relationships with others; and

Virtual Book Study: Supported Decision Making @ On-Line/Virtual
Oct 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Supported decision making leads to self-efficacy, which reflects confidence in the ability to exert control over one’s own motivation, behavior, and social environment. According to the author, Jonathan Martinis, this book is for “the people, parents, families, friends, professionals, and practitioners on the front lines who give and get the support we all need to lead our best lives.” The participants will learn how to apply and implement the principles of supported decision making with students with disabilities through the lens of the experience of Jenny Hatch and her pursuit for equity in her own decision making process in her adult life.


 

Please Note

  • This is the first of five book study dates for this title. Please see below for upcoming virtual meetups.
