How OER Can Support Student Equity and Diversity

Download to read offline

According to the Glossary of Education Reform, equity refers to the principle of fairness in education. Inequities occur when biased or unfair policies, programs, practices, or situations contribute to a lack of equality in educational performance, results, and outcomes. The development and use of open educational resources has the potential to create equitable learning experiences for all students. Open education is deeply rooted in the belief that teachers have the freedom to develop content that meets the needs of their students.

Join us for this webinar to hear the ways in which colleges can consider issues of equity when designing and delivering OER courses and degree programs. Presenters will share how open educational resources, policies, and practices can support equity and diversity through the development of culturally relevant learning experiences that emphasize inclusion and celebrate diversity.

When: Wed, Nov 15th, at 11am PT/ 2pm ET
Featured Speakers:
Francesca Carpenter: Associate Director, OER Degree Initiative Achieving the Dream

W. Preston Davis, EdD: Director of Instructional Services and Associate Professor, Northern Virginia Community College

Daphnie Sicre, PhD: Asst. Professor, Department of Speech, Communications and Theatre Arts Borough of Manhattan Community College City University of New York

Achieving the Dream’s Statement on Equity Achieving the Dream believes that access to a high quality education in an inclusive environment is the right of all individuals and imperative for the continued advancement of a strong democracy and workforce. Achieving the Dream also believes higher education institutions have an obligation to work toward equity for their students. Equity is grounded in the principle of fairness. In higher education, equity refers to ensuring that each student receives what they need to be successful through the intentional design of the college experience. Achieving the Dream expects colleges to dismantle the barriers facing underserved students. Colleges must routinely scrutinize structural barriers to equity and invest in equity-minded policies, practices, and behaviors that lead to success for all students.
