Welcome to the website and homepage of Technology & Disability, a course at Virginia Tech developed by Dr. Ashley Shew as well as the theme of her research.
On this page, you can find information about the first two runs of Technology & Disability class, information about my research program, and links to other wonderful course sites and blogs related to disability.
Technology and Disability is set to be taught again in Spring 2018 – and will *hopefully* have STS 3284 as permanent course listing for undergrads and STS 5284 for grad students! So far, the 3284 course proposal is through my department and college committees and awaits the Pathways and university committee in the Fall.
If you just can’t get enough, I’m slated to teach STS 5306: Philosophy of Technology for graduate students and STS 3314: Medical Dilemmas and Human Experience for undergraduate students during Fall 2017. I also occasionally teach STS 5444: Bioethics, but probably not again until 2018-2019.
If you have any queries, please Dr. Shew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
