(Nov. 10, 2009)--As part of Diversity Awareness Month, UTSA Disability Services and the Department of Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching will sponsor a presentation, "Creating Possibilities: Technology and Disabilities," from 2 to 4 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 12 in the University Center Ballroom (1.106) on the Main Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

At the event, UTSA students, faculty and staff can learn about disabilities, how people can benefit from assistive technology software and equipment, and how technology can enhance chances for success in academia, in careers and in life. Interactive activities will simulate some of the challenges faced by people with disabilities, and information will be available on services and assistive technology and student-created Web sites about disabilities. Additionally, faculty members can learn how to make their online classes more accessible for students with disabilities.

Certificates of attendance will be provided to students who can earn extra credit by attending. The Provost's UTSA Core Values Initiative will provide refreshments after the event.

The event organizers are UTSA assistant professors Maria Kaylor, Holly Baker Hill and Shane Crosby.
