Technology Test Kitchen Chef's Table Demo: Tools for Linguistic Inclusion in Online Courses

Brief Abstract

Take a seat and enjoy this sampling of small plates (i.e. educational tools), each of which has the unique flavor of contributing to a more linguistically inclusive classroom! Let Flipgrid, Lingt and Google translate do the cooking for you.


Madeline (Maddie) Shellgren is the one with the batman and dinosaur tattoos. This year marking her second as a PhD student in Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures, Maddie spent six years prior at Michigan State as a PhD student in Linguistics. She devotes a lot of time to thinking about educator support, community building, institutional and organizational change, program development, critical pedagogies, graduate student (and early-career professionals) socialization, identity and embodiment within higher education (i.e. 'the higher ed experience'), educator and professional development, cultures of change within institutional contexts, and ways to move towards sustainable, equitable, and anti-oppressive ecologies within higher education. That said, Maddie also spends a lot of time trying to figure out which local stores sell the best donuts (extensive research and data collection still underway) and which parks provide the best dog-walking experiences. When not teaching, being a grad student, or working for either Michigan State University's College of Arts and Letters, the Graduate School, or the Writing Center, you can find her working as a Standardized Patient for the College of Human Medicine or eating cannolis at Roma Bakery.
