Class in the Classroom
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: Remote and hybrid classrooms have highlighted the kind of class inequities that have always existed but have been easy to ignore in higher education.
This Lightning Talk session, offered in collaboration with BU Diversity & Inclusion and its Learn More series’ theme of social class, will focus on areas of practice and content that help us understand the myriad ways that class plays out in our classrooms, with strategies to create more inclusive classes.
About the Lightning Talk Format
Fast, peer-driven, and information-rich: Lightning Talks will showcase four-to-five presenters, specifically discussing the topic of remote and hybrid teaching and learning at BU. Each speaker will adhere to a maximum three-slide format for a short and focused, five-minute presentation. At the conclusion of all presentations, the moderator will encourage and facilitate cross-disciplinary conversation on the topic.
