Discipline Group Discussions Revisited
Return to your discipline Zoom room to reflect on the day’s discussions in webinars and lightning sessions in regard to their disciplines and culturally responsive online teaching. Time will be spent thinking about “where we would like to be a year from now” and identifying action steps for your discipline group.
Gather with all disciplines to share and hear what was learned and how to move forward with cultural fluency and best online teaching practices. Time will be allotted for discipline groups to share insights
and action plans.
