Employing Culturally Affirming and Equity-Minded Teaching and Learning Practices to Advance Institutional Equity
Faculty play an essential role in institutional efforts to close equity gaps and achieve student success, yet many campuses struggle to engage a broad constituency of faculty in these efforts, leaving many to wonder, “What is my role and responsibility in advancing equity efforts in my classes and beyond?” Thus, in this address, Frank will: (a) discuss the role all faculty must embrace to advance and achieve institutional equity and (b) propose culturally affirming teaching and learning strategies that must be employed by all classroom faculty to address inequity and disproportionate impact.

Structuring the Classroom for Inclusion
Teaching strategies that emphasize structured active learning can create more equitable classrooms and improve learning for all students. Educational technologies make it possible for instructors to use a variety of inclusive teaching techniques (such as supporting universal design and facilitating synchronous discussions in which everyone participates equitably). After providing a framework for inclusive teaching, Professors Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy of the University of North Carolina will draw upon their own teaching experiences and educational research to model various technology-based strategies that can be readily implemented with any discipline or class size to help all students achieve to their potentials.

Address Disruption and Lower Barriers with Universal Design
The challenges of shifting to remote instruction have highlighted inequities and barriers for learners, some new and some that have existed for a long time. For nearly 25 years, some of us in higher education have been using technology-mediated learning environments to lower barriers and address opportunity gaps for our learners. Today, it’s no longer an optional practice: everyone needs to know how to “toggle” between in-person instruction and technology-mediated learning, all while addressing the social-justice aspects of learning (Fritzgerald, 2020) with and through technology.

To help make educational materials and practices inclusive and useful for all learners, this interactive keynote radically reflects on how instructors can adopt Universal Design for Learning in order to create learning interactions that provide students with broader access to learning and more time for study and practice in their busy days. Paradoxically, this involves broadening our focus beyond service to learners with disabilities, into a larger ease-of-use/general-inclusion framework.
