EDUC 5199: Equity and Access in Online Spaces
In this course we will interrogate our implicit and explicit assumptions about equity and access in online spaces. We will build an understanding of our own implicit biases and then use the framework of anti-deficit narratives to frame our analyses. Topics explored in this course include democratic participation in the Age of Information; four dimensions of equity: access, achievement, identity and power; and creating online environments that support equity, diversity, inclusion and democratic participation. We will anchor our interrogation in research and our own experiences.
