This Magna Online Seminar gives you strategies to maximize your planning and design timeframe—all leading to a more efficient course (i.e. less stress for you when you’re teaching) and a better experience for your students.
In this seminar, participants will learn about the variety of administrative barriers facing transgender students at colleges and universities across the country. Examples of some barriers that will be discussed include the following: obtaining name changes on ID cards and administrative forms, navigating various online systems that retain and re-populate student demographic information, ensuring the correct and inclusive use of names and pronouns in the classroom, and accessing comprehensive and inclusive campus healthcare options.
The main takeaway participants have is a new knowledge about their students’ true level of digital competency. Participants will understand that, in many ways, the related skill sets that students are being taught in their courses with us are not the kinds of skills that their future employers most value. Faculty, staff, and students will better understand the need for more thorough and specific technology/digital competency education in academia.
Learn how to increase support for marginalized students taking online courses. The strategies and discussions presented will support diverse populations and increase positive learning outcomes in online environments.
