VIDBE-Q Volume 65 Issue 3 are commonly referred to as the 'blindfold courses'. The skills courses are where students learn how to travel under blindfold, and more importantly, learn how to teach people how to travel without using vision. The skills courses are designed to provide students with a comprehensive learning experience that includes one O&M instructor to every pair of students for the duration of the six weeks. Students will have the opportunity to work closely with O&M instructors to hone their skills as they progress through the summer session. Lincoln Nebraska provides incoming O&M students with a variety of opportunities to learn the O&M profession by virtue of the wide array of travel offerings it has. While in Lincoln students will have hands on experience with both rural and downtown travel, basic and complex intersections including various roundabouts, college campus travel, public transportation, shopping malls, etc. Upon completion of the O&M program at UNL, students will be able to work with students and clients of all ages ranging from early childhood to the aging population and in a variety of settings.
