Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Trauma-Aware Teaching

An exploration of why trauma-aware teaching must center diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Watch “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Trauma-Aware Teaching,” a virtual educator professional development session led by Karen Costa 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.
