Teaching practices must be adapted across modalities – what worked in the physical classroom may not translate well in the virtual classroom. This is especially true when applying an equity lens to maximize inclusivity and account for a diversity of learning preferences. The “banking” model of education, in which an expert deposits knowledge via lecturing into the minds of the passive absorber, has been shown to be less effective and even reinforce oppression, thus active learning strategies and other tools have been developed to create inclusive classrooms that work better for a variety of learning styles. Virtual classrooms come with unique equity and inclusion challenges that must be addressed to ensure the needs of all learners are met. This 90-minute interactive webinar will outline strategies educators can use in virtual classrooms to create an engaging, inclusive, and equitable learning environment. Participants will gain a better understanding of technology and other tools available to achieve diversity, equity, and inclusion goals when teaching in virtual classrooms.
This webinar is free and open to anyone at Ohio State.
