when enforcing the student code of conduct
By Stephanie Russo Bohler
Most universities have a code of conduct that students are expected to
follow and a disciplinary process for when they do not. Students who fail
to comply with campus rules will often face a student conduct board, dur-
ing which they have an opportunity to share their account of the report-
ed incident and then a panel determines what an appropriate sanction is.
What happens when a person with a disability violates institutional policy?

ate accommodations, they are able to satisfy curriculum requirements and

Big solutions for small groups
in health science programs
By Linda Sullivan, M.A.; and Lisa M. Meeks, Ph.D.
Small group learning and instructional design play a signiﬁcant role in the
educational process for health education students. Small groups in health
science curricula provide learners with opportunities to engage as a team,
learn through observation and collaboration, hone communication skills,
develop higher-order thinking, synthesize information, and develop group
consensus. Team-based care (the standard in many health ﬁelds) necessi-
tates that learners acquire these essential skills prior to entering the clinic.
In health science education, faculty members present the “case” and facili-
tate small groups. The groups then engage in deductive reasoning to arrive
at a diagnosis, and in some cases a treatment plan.
