Equity-Minded Teaching with Technology: Practical Strategies to Include and Support Learners in Every Class

As we strive to advance equitable learning outcomes, inclusive course design and teaching practices play a pivotal role. To this end, we have a powerful yet often overlooked tool:  the technology that’s readily available in our classes, whether we teach in person, online, or both. We’ll explore how to teach equity-focused classes in all modalities, sizes, and disciplines through the effective use of technology. We can extend belonging to our students, foster trust, and promote meaningful time on task, all of which help students learn more effectively.

You’ll leave with practical ideas to implement next week or next semester.
