PacWest Learning Modules: Cultural Crossroads in Disabilities

The PacWest LEND Regional Consortium created a series of learning modules on cultural crossroads in disabilities. Each learning module has an accessible PDF, video description, and discussion questions/reflections with facilitator talking points. 

Module Guide: Recommended as a preview to viewing the modules to consider ways of facilitating discussion or reflecting on content. The Guide includes video descriptions, interview questions, and discussion questions/reflections with facilitator talking points. It can also be revisited after viewing the Module to decide which specific questions or content will be useful for your purposes.


Evaluation: The Module creators are collecting satisfaction feedback from Trainees and use/integration of modules in LEND/DBP Curricula data from Faculty. Please assist by completing the surveys:
