The goal of the Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children - Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children

First Multi-institution Collaborative Approved to Increase Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments in Ohio

August 8, 2017. The Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children announces the approval of the first multi-institution preparation program designed to increase the number of teachers of students with visual impairments (TVIs) in Ohio. Portsmouth-based Shawnee State University, which serves as the lead institution for the new TVI program, will collaborate with four other partner institutions of higher education – Kent State University, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, University of Rio Grande, and Youngstown State University. All five institutions are working together to provide a common on-line curriculum leading to TVI licensure.

The program – called the TVI Consortium – is part of the work of the Low Incidence Sensory Disability Collaborative initiated through the Deans Compact with support and leadership from the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

The four-semester program, designed as a post-baccalaureate licensure only program, is open to individuals who hold a standard teaching license and/or an intervention specialist license in an area other than VI. Teachers are currently being recruited for a fall 2017 start; they will progress through the curriculum as a cohort.

Nationally, programs for students with visual impairment and other low incidence sensory disabilities (e.g., hearing impairment, deafblindness) are closing due to high costs. But students with low incidence sensory disabilities still need expert teachers. In Ohio, the TVI Consortium will provide these students with expert teachers in the near future. The Consortium will combat severe shortages of LISD providers across large areas of the state and, in particular, Ohio’s rural south and southeastern counties. The new on-line, shared licensure program will allow teachers to remain in their local communities while becoming TVIs.

Dr. Paul Madden, Dean of Shawnee State University’s College of Professional Studies, was instrumental in assuming a lead role in the development of the LISD Collaborative. He explains: “Shawnee State University is committed to being part of the solution of addressing the needs students in the southern and southeastern region of the state and, in fact, the entire state through our active engagement with colleagues in P12 schools, agencies, and in other institutions that are looking for new ways to approach the learning needs of students and the preparation and support of educators to meet these needs.”

For more information about the Ohio Deans Compact, contact Deborah Telfer, PhD, Director, University of Cincinnati Systems Development & Improvement Center, at [email protected] or visit the Compact website at www.ohiodeanscompact.org.

ohiodeanscompact.org The Compact promotes shared understanding and collective action to improve learning and results for all children, especially those from marginalized groups (e.g., students with disabilities, students who are economically disadvantaged).

Project Learning Around the World:: Home

Trip to South Africa 2016
YSU Graduate students and Seniors

An educational trip to South Africa is planned for May 4th -21st 2016. We will visit Johannesburg, Pretoria, Knysna, the Indian Ocean, and the Krueger National Park while in South Africa.

Our primary mission will be to participate in Project Learning Around the World which is a 501 3c charity www.platw.org (please view videos 2011 and 2014 for overview of trip). We will spend a few days visiting various schools and having an opportunity to see the townships and how people live. The trip is also a cultural educational experience and you will each engage in many cultural opportunities.

The trip is intense, from a travel stand point, as we are constantly on the go observing, viewing, and participating. The trip is sponsored by YSU and therefore students must register for the 3 semester hour summer graduate course. If you are an undergraduate student, you must have completed a minimum of 90 semester hours or have Senior status. You will need to get a special form from the graduate school into order to take a graduate course.

The cost is $3,870.00 which will include: airfare to South Africa, airfare within South Africa, the van and car rental, gas, tolls, all accommodations, visit to Krueger park and some of the food cost, malaria pills, and most educational activities, but not all. This is not an all-inclusive trip. You will need to bring money for some lunches and dinners out plus souvenirs. The cost of the 3 hour graduate course is separate from the above fee.
The cost of the trip is estimated due to the fluctuation in airfare costs and the rand to USD exchange rates. I was able to obtain a great rand exchange for Kruger National Park and so have booked this in advance. Go to: www.perfectafrica.com and search Kruger National Park.

Maximum Enrollment: 9
If interested please e-mail me at:
[email protected]
Organizational meeting will be held early in September

I promise you this is a trip of a lifetime Audrey E. Ellenwood, Ph.D. , Adjunct Professor and Director Project Learning Around the World Director

Paid peer tutoring opportunity for fall.


Tomorrow is the last day we are accepting applications to participate in Read Across America. If you know any children that might be interested, please get their application to me no later than tomorrow so I can submit the t-shirt order.


Congratulations to Gail Saunders-Smith, whose proposal to the Ronald MacDonald Foundation of Youngstown was approved for $4,000 to be used to cover the cost of supplies for a 2-week reading camp planned for next summer.
