WCET Webcast: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Digital Learning

Educational opportunity and economic success are intertwined and a college degree enables students to accomplish their career goals and aspirations. Yet, as a society, we must confront the fact that a high-quality education was long unjustly denied to Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students, low-income students, and first-generation students. The shift to remote learning unmasked challenges for colleges and universities in delivering quality, equity-focused education. Higher education must do better for these students moving forward, and we believe that it starts with digital learning. Join our panel of higher education professionals for a provocative conversation about equitable teaching practices and digital learning that foster student-centered learning and cultivate a culture of inclusion.

Speakers: Jessica Rowland Williams, Director, Every Learner Everywhere; Tazin Daniels, Assistant Director at the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching at the University of Michigan; Blaine Smith, Associate Professor of New Libraries and Bi/Multilingual Immigrant Learners at the University of Arizona; and Megan Raymond, Senior Director of Programs and Mentorship at WCET.
