HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 9, 2010 ? Tara Shollenberger, manager of the Budd Family Campus for the Evening Degree Program at High Point University, recently presented a paper at The College Teaching and Learning Conference, held in Orlando.

Shollenberger presented “Faculty Perceptions of Students with Learning Disabilities: A Review of Literature,” which detailed faculty perceptions, attitudes and views on accommodations to adult students with learning disabilities.

“Faculty attitudes and perceptions are key components in the success of students with learning disabilities in college and university settings,” Shollenberger explains. “My research was divided into six categories ? accommodations, gender, rank, academic field, previous experience/knowledge and culture ? to help further examine faculty attitudes and perceptions of students with learning disabilities.”

The conference covers such topics as curriculum, ethics in higher education, promotion and tenure, accreditation, teaching methods and styles, administration, faculty, welfare, technology in the classroom, teacher evaluation, department-specific issues and other related topics.
