COVID-19: How to Make Online Teaching Equitable in Higher Ed

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many college and university classes will be held online for the foreseeable future. With an international reckoning of institutionalized racism, educators must ensure they teach these courses in an equitable and justice-oriented manner.

Mastering the technological skills required for online teaching is only the first step. You also need to adapt your content and delivery to center equity and justice.

You can use intergroup dialogue to talk about social justice, power, and oppression with people who have differing views on these issues. This process asks participants to:

  1. Critically examine social practices of privilege and oppression
  2. Reflect on what they learn
  3. Act in socially just ways in their everyday lives

By mastering and applying equitable content development and teaching techniques, you can build an inclusive online course.

  • How is equity defined?
  • What is the intergroup dialogue model?
  • What does research about productive intergroup dialogues reveal?
  • What are the best practices to increase equity in online teaching?
  • How can you minimize equity issues relating to technology access?
  • What specific skills from intergroup dialogues can you infuse in your classes?
