|Humanizing Online Learning for Equity and Social Justice
Instructor: Michelle Pacansky-Brock
Online classes are key to improving access to college and degree attainment rates among California's underrepresented student population. However, data shows that achievement gaps are exacerbated when underrepresented students learn online. This panel consideres the instructional elements that contribute to this problem and explores strategies for designing and facilitating culturally sensitive online classes that are more likely to support the success of underrepresented students.
|Statewide Accesibility Resources
A consistent hot topic for online instruction is how to ensure accessibility. At this session, leaders of major statewide accessibility resources and services will describe how they can help colleges to develop online classes that are accessible to all students and in compliance with legal requirements. Featured programs include the High Tech Center Training Unit (HTCTU), Online Education Initiative (OEI), Alternate Text Production Center (ATPC), and Distance Education Captioning and Transcription grant (DECT).
