Lessons from COVID-19: Using Digital Content to Increase Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

While the rapid shift in remote learning has presented institutions with many challenges, it has also created unexpected opportunities to make learning more affordable and accessible to all types of learners. The rapid shift to digital content, for instance, has exposed fault lines in the “traditional” approach, including prohibitive costs, lack of accessibility features, and lack of diverse content – which have, in turn, resulted in decreased engagement. 

In the wake of the pandemic, forward-thinking institutions have found success transitioning from older print-focused models to digital solutions that offer a wider range of content at lower costs to students – solving both accessibility and affordability challenges at once. This panel will bring together leaders across the higher education sector to discuss the role of new approaches to content in expanding access and opportunity, particularly for historically underrepresented students, and how to build on these initial successes moving forward.

This webinar is sponsored by BibliU.
