DLINQ is offering this resource page as a small step toward antiracist critical design and pedagogy. While inclusive design and social justice have been integral to DLINQ’s work, we feel that antiracism needs to be specifically named and addressed.
As a cross-institutional group of instructional designers, digital scholars, student interns, and teaching and learning professionals, we are committed to using our platform and our expertise in online learning and digital technology to promote inclusive, antiracist pedagogy. DLINQ works with students, faculty, and staff to develop critical digital literacies needed to combat those threats and help foster a more diverse, inclusive, and just digital world.
On this page we highlight some of the many resources that exist to help educators adopt an antiracist approach to teaching and learning. Below you will find FAQs, resources organized by topic, and links to initiatives on our campuses. This page is not intended to be an exhaustive list and we recognize that we can’t include every potential resource. If there’s something you feel we’re missing that is critical to include, or if you’d like to offer us feedback on our practices and resources, please drop us a line via the feedback form linked at the bottom of this page.
We also want to call out the importance of everyone doing this work. Instead of asking BIPOC colleagues or student peers for resources, we encourage you to start educating yourself by drawing on existing resources. We offer this page as one resource, and we encourage you to take advantage of other resources offered by Middlebury and others (some of which are linked below).
