one-size-fits-one: Inclusively designing education experiences and materials

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Too often we consider diversity to be an issue, not an asset. However, our complex, interconnected, and technology-heavy world needs diversified, collaborative life-long learners. All learners should reach their unique potential. And education plays a crucial role in nurturing diverse perspectives, needs, and approaches.

Learn how to ‘design’ education through inclusive design practices and thinking. Participants will engage in co-design activities to prototype learning resources and processes that foster diversity and inclusion in our classrooms and in our society.

I am lately most fascinated with the evolving world of design, in particular ethics and design. I spend most of my time in inclusion, diversity, and equity. And am deeply committed to empowering people and helping to shift their perspective.
