Creating the quality and equitable digital learning environments of the future requires us to instantiate humanized, inclusive, and impactful experiences for our students. As a means of best aligning online, blended, and digital learning to their needs, what if we reimagined our practices and strategic processes to build our digital learning future in collaboration with our students? Bringing together the emergent themes of the conference, as well as diverse narratives of the lived-in experiences of our featured students, this plenary panel will leverage the wisdom of our students in collectively charting a path to a new reality where access to quality education within online, blended, and digital learning is inclusive of all learners, and collaboratively built from the articulated needs of our students.
