Ed Talk: Creating an inclusive online learning community: alternative assessment examples and strategies


Location: Online (Zoom)

Lisa Dolasinski

Inclusive assessment is not just about evaluating students. It is also about the ongoing activities that we use as educators to evaluate their progress formally and informally to understand how they are progressing to our course learning objectives. As our classrooms become more diverse, it is important to understand that the ways that we assess need to become more inclusive.

In this presentation, Lisa Dolasinski will illustrate the best ways to design accessible assessments and give examples and strategies for inclusive assessment.
