The second and third decades of the 21st-century could be remembered for many things – elections, disease, changes to the climate – but surely one of the most important changes underway in our moment is the movement towards equity, inclusivity, and diversity. Digital media has meant that the voices influencing popular consciousness, civic advocacy, public policy, and education have become more diverse and accessible. Securing rights for LGBTQ+ students, fighting anti-Black, anti-Asian, and anti-Indigenous racism – these are just some of the initiatives that students can see taking place.

In this context, educators have a responsibility to deliver curriculum within the broader context of inclusivity and diversity. Once again, digital platforms have been an essential tool to bring diverse and previously underrepresented voices into the classroom.

This seminar will consider three ways to infuse familiar approaches to curricular units with greater cultural responsivity and awareness using digital teaching tools.
