Create an environment in your online course where all students can learn successfully.


This is a webcast recording from the live event that took place on March 30, 2020.

In the wake of COVID-19, the rapid transition of moving courses online has left many students feeling isolated and insecure, and it has put the most vulnerable students at even greater risk. By using components of inclusive pedagogy in online courses, instructors have the unique opportunity to build community in a new way and create spaces for all students to come together and learn on equal footing.

This webcast recording will offer practical, immediately applicable techniques that educators from any area of study can use to create a positive online learning environment and effectively engage students. By making small adjustments in your teaching process, you can make your online course more inclusive and allow your students to more effectively learn during these uncertain times.

Who should attend?

This program will benefit both instructors and anyone supporting faculty in their transition to online instruction. Specifically, faculty, graduate students, Center for Teaching & Learning staff, deans, and chairs are encouraged to attend.
