Diversity in Online Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This past fall, President Barron called for a commitment for diversity and inclusion. What does diversity "look" like in the online environment? What are the unique benefits and challenges to teaching and reaching students who are to a great extent disembodied and/or invisible? In this presentation we will discuss the various demographic data of our students, in terms of age, race, gender, and ability/accessibility needs. We ask faculty and designers to reflect on what implicit assumptions are embedded in our teaching and course design. We will address some of the unique "diverse" challenges of our students and spend part of the discussion working in small groups to design more informed teaching and design practices.
