AEDs are specially designed for easy use by a “first responder”, who would be the first person to typically arrive on the scene of a medical emergency. Attend this training to get an overview of how this device works, where they are located on campus and what you can do in an emergency.

Reactions to students’ differences can lead to class conflict, impacting a student’s ability to learn and an instructor’s ability to teach. Participants will leave this session with strategies and resources to address disruptive student behavior.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goal of this session is to provide participants resources and options to address students who are disruptive in the classroom environment.
