WCET Session | October 26, 2023 at 10:15 AM CT

According to the American Council on Education, “Education within a diverse setting prepares students to become good citizens in an increasingly complex, pluralistic society.” Supporting a diverse workforce begins at an institutional level, but there are challenges to meeting the ever-shifting needs of diversity, equity, and inclusion. How can institutions adapt to meet the cultural changes and expectations of new generations of students? 

Panelists will lay the foundation of what DEI means in higher education, discuss how technology supports equitable access to learning, and share tips for how your institution can implement DEI best practices today.
