Leadership Network Symposium - Equity Considerations in Evaluating Online and Blended Learning

Brief Abstract

The field's current focus on centering quality, equity, and care in digital learning environments has led us to collectively consider our assessment and evaluation processes more broadly. This interactive session seeks to support institutions in understanding what contributes to building quality online learning and, in particular, what they should be looking for as their courses, programs, and institutional strategy are evaluated both internally and externally (including in the accreditation process) with diversity, equity, and inclusion in mind.

This session is available only to registered attendees of the Leadership Network Symposium.  

Track: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
