Pedagogy Disability and Communication

Author: Michael S. Jeffress
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
ISBN: 9781315399416
Release Date: 2017-04-28
Genre: Health & Fitness

Research has long substantiated the fact that living with a disability creates significant and complex challenges to identity negotiation, the practice of communication, and the development of interpersonal relationships. Furthermore, individuals without disabilities often lack the knowledge and tools to experience self-efficacy in communicating with their differently-abled peers. So how do these challenges translate to the incorporation of disability studies in a classroom context and the need to foster an inclusive environment for differently-abled students? Bringing together a range of perspectives from communication and disability studies scholars, this collection provides a theoretical foundation along with practical solutions for the inclusion of disability studies within the everyday curriculum. It examines a variety of aspects of communication studies including interpersonal, intercultural, health, political and business communication as well as ethics, gender and public speaking, offering case study examples and pedagogical strategies as to the best way to approach the subject of disability in education. It will be of interest to students, researchers and educators in communication and disability studies as well as scholars of sociology and social policy, gender studies, public health and pedagogy. It will also appeal to anyone who has wondered how to bring about a greater degree of inclusion and ethics within the classroom.

Die beste Suchmaschine ist unser Geist Seit 2007 bietet Google seinen Mitarbeitern ein Programm für persönliches Wachstum an: »Search inside yourself«. Den Anstoß dazu gab Chade-Meng Tan, ein Google-Ingenieur, der diesen Acht-Wochen-Kurs zusammen mit renommierten Wissenschaftlern wie Jon Kabat-Zinn und Daniel Goleman entwickelte. »Search inside yourself« bietet ein Achtsamkeitstraining, um emotionale Intelligenz zu erlernen, mit dem Ziel, zufriedener, gelassener, kreativer und schließlich auch erfolgreicher zu werden. Es umfasst Übungen und Meditationen, um die Konzentration zu verbessern, die Selbstwahrnehmung zu erhöhen und nützliche mentale Gewohnheiten zu entwickeln. Bei Google ist dieses Trainingsprogramm äußerst beliebt und nachgefragt. Chade-Meng Tan macht es nun erstmals öffentlich zugänglich. Mit Leichtigkeit und Witz, und dabei stets wissenschaftlich fundiert (er ist ja Ingenieur!) zeigt er einen etwas anderen, jedoch sehr vielversprechenden Weg zu Kreativität und Lebensglück. Und wenn das bei Google funktioniert – warum nicht auch bei uns?

This book can serve as a helpful textbook for seminarians and a useful guide for pastors and priests, church study groups, multicultural parishes, and anyone engaged in helping ministries with persons from other cultures.
