Forging Identity in an Academic Setting

Concurrent Session 2

Brief Abstract

Can remote proctoring be a tool to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in education? Identity verification is key to making online learning a valid alternative to in-person teaching. What happens when your identity is in transition or is non-conforming? Representatives from higher education as well as the government and corporate worlds will gather to answer these questions and hopefully spark new ones. Join us for a panel discussion about the history of LGBTQ representation in education, the challenges faced and the technological advances that allow for the doors to higher ed to remain open to everyone.
