Transitioning to Online Classes Seminar!
The Office of Accessibility Services knows that you may be stressed and concerned about the next couple of weeks and how you can continue to succeed in your courses while managing everything else that will be going on in your life. OAS is here to be a support and resource during that time! We want to invite you to join us on a virtual session next Friday, March 20th at 1 pm that will provide you some guidance and support in the transition to online classes. Some of the topics we will cover include:
- Managing stress and your physical, mental, and emotional health during this time
- Communicating with your faculty effectively through online means
- Accessing and effectively using academic resources (i.e., tutoring, online tools) during this time period
- Taking care of oneself and prioritizing self-care during this time period
Students must preregister to attend the session at https://fsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_85DSjlGwsDRB2n3. Once you register, you will get a calendar invite and more information from the office, including a survey asking for additional questions and topics you would like for us to cover. While the session is mostly intended for students, parents and family members are welcome to attend!
Congratulations to the inaugural class of OAS Ambassadors!
The OAS Ambassador Program is a leadership development program offered that provides an opportunity for students to become involved with the OAS and the community of people with disabilities at Florida State University. The OAS Ambassador program works to decrease the stigma related to disability from a student perspective through programming and peer-to-peer interactions. Ambassadors serve as a visible student face for the OAS to provide programming, campaigns, and outreach to peers in the FSU community.
Congratulations to the inaugural class of the OAS Ambassadors:
