DARE to CARE - Disability Accommodation tRaining Environment, (in collaboration with the DSPS office at LBCC ) was funded by FIPSE (Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education). DARE was used for training all over the country, and is still available for the training of DSPS-related issues for faculty and staff.
DARE to Care was an interactive, Web-based, multimedia training program in which faculty learned to identify and handle disabled student issues in their on-campus and distance learning classes. The DARE project was available free to any faculty around the U.S. and the world. The program was used by individual faculty for self-training, or by any educational institution that wished to offer the program to its faculty population. As of April 2006, in addition to LBCC faculty users, over 200 users from 96 educational institutions nationwide wer using the program at their institutions.

Welcome to DARE to Care!
Welcome to "DARE to Care: Disability Accommodations tRaining Environment." This project is a free interactive multimedia simulative training program in which faculty learn to identify and handle disabled student issues in their on-campus and Distance Learning classes.
This project was developed by the Instructional Technology Development Center (ITDC) at Long Beach City College, and funded in part by a three-year grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Post-secondary Education (FIPSE) at the U.S. Department of Education.
The project, including this Web site and the interactive training, is now the core training material used by the Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSP&S) office at LBCC to disseminate information, services, and resources as well as faculty professional development activities.
