WHAT:

Cultural barriers are a critical aspect of teaching and learning, especially in an online environment. Students from diverse cultural backgrounds have different online learning experiences. This workshop is designed to enable us to reflect critically on our unconscious biases and consider how they may interfere with our roles as a Teaching Assistant in an Online environment. It will also draw our attention to some of the most common cultural issues that affect students' contributions and willingness to participate in course assignments, forum discussions, and the successful completion of their program of studies.

 

FACILITATOR: Reuben Plance, Instructional Support Assistant (Education)
