What do we know about Blended Learning’s Role in addressing Diversity and Inclusion? A Summary of the Current Educational Research Findings
|When:||Tu 28-06-2022 12:00 - 13:00|
Recently the Communities of Practice for Blended Learning along with the Inclusion and Diversity group decided to look at the existing research on how different forms of Blended Learning benefit or hinder learning for different groups. In this presentation, we will look at a summary of the existing literature and discuss the implications for educational design.
Are you interested in how different blended learning designs might address diversity and inclusion in your course? If so, this event will cover the current research on how different technologies and active learning activities are perceived by different audiences. Here we will consider the role of different demographics in the classroom from entry level undergraduate students through to graduate students, gender, and international backgrounds. We will also address how students with different learning disabilities and behavioral orientations perceive different blended learning elements as well as how intentional design is perceived by not only different types of students but the teachers who are tasked with course design and implementation.
This session, hosted by Mellie Pullman & Liga Klavina, will cover the highlights of a white-paper research project between the Community of Practice for Blended Learning with the Community of Practice for Diversity and Inclusion.
