An Equity-First Approach to Postsecondary Digital Learning

An Equity-First Approach to Postsecondary Digital Learning is one of a series of teaching strategy guides published by Every Learner Everywhere for the purpose of highlighting how the three facets of our mission, equity in higher education, digital learning, and evidence-based teaching practices, can be applied in higher educational courses.

An Equity-First Approach to Postsecondary Digital Learning outlines seven necessary components to adopting and utilizing digital learning tools equitably. This strategy guide also includes a framework for centering equity in the course design, underlying principles, and pedagogical practice of digital courseware.

The seven components of equitable digital learning include:

  1. Ground the pedagogy in evidence-based teaching practices
  2. Provide instructors with engaging, no-cost professional learning opportunities
  3. Take an ecological approach and leverage support services
  4. Use high-quality courseware
  5. Use open educational resources
  6. Leverage courseware adoption and decision-making resources
  7. Gather qualitative and quantitative user data
