Inclusive Design for More Equitable Learning Communities

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Learning environments are often created without the input or experience of the most important stakeholders: the people they are intended to serve. As a result, they fail to identify and meet very real needs. Inclusion is essential to creating equitable programs and deeper learning experiences. In this hands-on workshop, participants will explore how to apply design thinking tools and strategies for innovation in education. Together, we will consider how to be aware of oneself in the design of community interactions and learning environments. Participants will dive deeper through the practice and use of powerful strategies/tools to engage essential stakeholders and co-create visions of more equitable futures, to discuss obstacles to inclusion, and to anticipate the processes, actions, and experiences needed to advance toward desired outcomes. This Deeper Learning by Doing® experience will energize communities to take forward new tools/strategies, artifacts of their experience, a set of personal action steps, contacts for follow-on coaching - and a greater sense of confidence about advancing equity through innovation.
