Online education brings together students with very diverse backgrounds and experiences. This diversity enriches the classroom and needs to be valued.
How can teachers embrace and take advantage of student diversity? What tools and advice can help to manage it?
The UOC’s Faculty of Economics and Business, in collaboration with the Globalization and Cooperation department, invites you to the webinar “How to create an inclusive virtual learning environment”, which will take place on Wednesday 3 November at 3 p.m. (CET). It will cover research and practice, and look at pedagogical approaches to create inclusive online classrooms.
Alexandra Sedlovskaya, an expert in diversity and inclusion in education, will provide the keys to creating an inclusive and enriching learning environment in classrooms and will explore research and practice, and different teaching approaches to making an inclusive online classroom that advances individual learning.
Sedlovskaya is Associate Director of the C. Roland Christensen Center for Teaching and Learning at Harvard Business School. Her work involves designing and implementing research related to educational management and teaching methods that support participant-centred learning.
This event is part of the UOC’s commitment to improving how we manage and support diversity in the classroom. The event is part of the European e-Inclusion project, which brings together a consortium of six partners and is supported by the European Union through its Erasmus+ programme. The UOC is one of the four universities that form part of this research consortium on inclusive education.
