Inclusive design for learning is intentional design work that focuses on the creation of learning spaces and materials that support diverse learners and in which all learners have equal access to learning and are able to thrive. In this session, Amy and Sarah will invite participants to consider some of the barriers to inclusive design in online learning, and identify concrete and actionable small moves that we can take as learning designers to begin to address these barriers in our own courses.
About the Teaching Online & Hybrid Conversation Series
Since Fall 2018, the Office of Digital Learning & Inquiry (DLINQ) has convened a conversation series for faculty to explore and address pedagogical and technical issues related to teaching and learning online. As Middlebury moves into more hybrid and online learning opportunities, these conversations will help to prepare faculty to take advantage of these opportunities, while ensuring that we are designing courses and programs that reflect our unique values and approaches to learning. You can find information and artifacts from earlier events in the conversation series archived on our Teaching Hybrid & Online page.
