Don't Ignore the D.E.A.: Design, Equity, and Access in Online Education


The "digital divide" was a term coined in 2012 to describe the disparity amongst those students who did have internet access and those who did not (Van Dijk, 2012). Research indicates teacher preparation and quality of teaching is the leading factor in student success. Poor preparation and inadequate quality of design strategies can deprive students of equitable use and access to optimal digital-based learning experiences (Delgado, 2019). In this session we will discuss how through the incorporation of intentional design strategies, strategies that promote equity and access, we can create more inclusive learning experiences for our students.
