Some of Us Belong Online: Equity, Inclusion, and The Student Experience Project

Thursday, June 08 | 11:00AM–12:00PM PT | Pacific Ballroom D, 2nd Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Presentation

This presentation will share the UNC Charlotte model of faculty development through the team-based Active Learning Academy Faculty Learning Community as a scalable model for fostering faculty’s awareness of and ability to implement equity-based pedagogical interventions based on The Student Experience Project. Our findings counter the notion that F2F instruction is necessarily more beneficial to all students by sharing both quantitative and qualitative data demonstrating the significant benefit to structurally disadvantaged and financially stressed students in terms of Belonging Certainty, Self-Efficacy, and Social Belonging.
