Antiracist Practices & the DLINQ Online Course Design Rubric

DLINQ has developed the Middlebury Online Course Design rubric to articulate the core components of good online course design, as well as specific elements to attend to while creating an online course. We have updated the rubric to incorporate antiracist practices and resources into the six different components of the rubric. The newly added practices specific to antiracism include: 

Structure & Organization
Design & Layout
Content & Activities
Interaction & Collaboration
Assessment & Feedback
Tools & Tech

DLINQ Studios

DLINQ’s Studios offer opportunities for students and faculty to critically engage with and research emerging digital practices and technology for the purpose of social impact. Studios are designed to be exploratory, project-oriented, and to provide opportunities within and outside of the formal curriculum. 

As they work with DLINQ’s Studios, students and faculty develop digital literacies and practices that prepare them to shape their worlds, even as technologies and their impacts change. Mentorship and guidance as part of Studio projects are key to this outcome. Mentorship and guidance are provided by the DLINQ Studio lead, though members/fellows are also key contributors to ongoing learning in the Studio.

The below two studios specifically explore issues of social justice and inclusivity. 

Inclusive Design Studio
Information Environmentalism Studio

Online Teaching and Learning Antiracism Resources

Online learning and digital spaces can perpetuate social inequities and biases. We feel it is necessary to highlight antiracist pedagogical resources broadly and to emphasize the importance of antiracist practices in online learning specifically.
