Digital Equity & E-Inclusion Community of Practice Fall 2022

Virtual Community of Practice

The Digital Equity & E-Inclusion Community of Practice (DECoP) will bring together faculty interested in supporting, exploring, and cultivating a digital equity practice. Group members will use Creating Inclusive Learning Opportunities in Higher Education (opens in a new window) by Sheryl Burgstahler as a guide for discussion, and for course modifications. Over the semester, participants will work on an aspect of their course to address through the lens of digital equity. We hope you will dedicate ~ 1hr of work outside of meetings on your course modifications.


Meetings will be held every other Thursday from 3:00-4:00pm. Meetings will be via Zoom
