Echoes Instructional Design, Inc. is pleased to join the NYS Commission for the Blind and Visually Handicapped’s Sumer 2013 Pre- College Program! In this four week residential program, participants will experience college life first hand as they develop research, writing, technology, and independent living skills. Echoes Instructional Design’s Developmental Writing Seminar (DWS) has been incorporated into the program to provide challenging academic and technological instruction.
The DWS program uses the framework of a Freshman English class to introduce writing techniques and new technologies via online learning with real-time discussion. Our goal is to help students develop fluency with mainstream, accessible tools and applications to facilitate college academics. Our Writing Professors, Technology Specialists, and Distinguished Guests will work closely with participants to challenge, guide, and inspire.
