Equity and Inclusion in Online Learning. 

UNM-Valencia Campus and the Faculty Online Teaching & Review Committee continue our annual online teaching conference. We offer 30-minute presentations and 10-minute teaching tips associated with this theme and/or online learning. 

Keynote Presentation:

Scaffolding Trust: Student Voices and Online Teaching Choices

 This talk will introduce participants to a small focus group and interview study UNM staff and faculty conducted in 2021 to document how students recognize and value culturally responsive teaching practices in online courses and support services. The presentation will highlight low-lift strategies instructors and support staff can implement as well as draw attention to institutional practices we may need to re-examine to clear the path for students' success.
