Creating Equity-Based Digital Learning Environments for Student Success in All Course Formats
Presenter: DR. KEVIN KELLY
MARCH 3, 5:00 PM EST via Zoom
More than ever before, instructors in 2020 have focused on how they teach as much as they focused on what they teach, no matter which formats they used. In this session, we will explore strategies to address learning equity issues that were amplified this year for many students. We will also discuss fostering the connection and community that students want and need to succeed and supporting all students regardless of their identities, cultures, and backgrounds.
