Authors Racheal Brooks, PhD, and Siobahn Day Grady, PhD, address the concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion in this Quality Matters white paper. Many learners are at a disadvantage when diversity, equity and inclusion are not properly considered in online course design. Instructors are encouraged to incorporate the elements described in the white paper.
