Webinar | Digital Learning as a Tool for Social Justice

Research shows that student performance in gateway courses is a direct predictor of retention and student success. However, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and other minoritized student groups have historically been underserved in these courses, resulting in higher DFWI rates and lower retention rates for these students. Digital learning can be a catalyst for improving course outcomes for historically minoritized students, but instructors also need awareness and tools to address the affective, interpersonal, and situational challenges that Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and other minoritized student groups experience. In this session, I will share strategies for faculty and institutional leaders for digital learning transformation at scale that centers on equity and racial justice.
