Beyond Design Thinking: New Tools to Redesign Learning for Racial Justice and Equity

An overview of design principles and tools to apply reflective approaches to any course to redesign learning for racial justice and equity.

Watch “Beyond Design Thinking: New Tools to Redesign Learning for Racial Justice and Equity,” a virtual educator professional development session led by Jennifer Nichols during the 2020 OLC Ideate: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Digital Learning Environments

Over the course of five days (December 7-11, 2020), the Online Learning Consortium (in partnership with Every Learner Everywhere) held a series of open salons (a casual and inclusive space with discussions organized and facilitated by a salon leader) that offered educators of all levels the opportunity to listen to emerging ideas and effective practices from their peers.  These casual discussions are designed to specifically encourage reflection, co-creation, and synthesis, with connections to future OLC events for further collaboration.
