An OSU group is researching customer requirements for people with disabilities, and are looking for assistance.
Participants will be trying a series of kitchen gadgets and being asked for feedback on the functionality of each one. People with upper extremity physical disabilities who are interested in being part of this research project or who would like additional information are encouraged to contact Jessica Armstrong at email@example.com.
DAS Online Services is not allowing new student applications to be submitted currently. We have contacted our system manager, and he is working on a solution. We appreciate your patience while we work on a solution. Please contact us at 541-737-4098 with any questions.
CALLING ALL OSU STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES…OSU College Forests is in the process of conducting a study on the future of recreation on the OSU College Forests. As part of this effort they would like to hear the voices of not only their current visitors, but also of potential visitors who may be currently under-served by the programs offered on the College Forests. They are looking for individuals with great ideas about what activities and opportunities the Forests might offer to better serve the interests of our mid-Willamette Valley community. More information on the project is available on our website:
One out of five people have or will develop a disability in their lifetime, but we rarely think about society’s underlying assumptions regarding this common human experience. This course will explore disability from social psychological and disability studies perspectives.
We will explore the social construction of disability and its inter- and intra-personal ramifications. This course departs from traditional psychology courses that focus on impairments within the individual and attempt to normalize people with disabilities. Instead, this class will explore how society’s conception of disability is the main source of handicap.
Course information: Psychology of Disability T/Th 12-1:50. Prerequisites: Psy 202 and upper division standing.
