Strategies for designing equitable online learning environments
About this session:
Using the four dimensions of readiness for online learning (Bernard et al., 2004), the presenters will share strategies for designing equitable online learning environments for student success and access for all learners. The session will feature practical examples that encompass assessment, inclusivity, educational technology, student engagement, and course management to foster equity and promote access for all learners (specific examples shared from a remote class of ~450 students). Participants will leave with a template to create their own course design action plans for increased student accessibility in high-enrollment online classes.
