This webinar was hosted in partnership with Every Learner Everywhere.

Educational opportunity and economic success are intertwined, and a college degree enables students to accomplish their career goals and aspirations. Yet, as a society, we must confront the fact that a high-quality education has been long unjustly denied to Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students, along with low-income students and first-generation students. The shift to remote learning unmasked challenges for colleges and universities in delivering quality, equity-focused education. Moving forward, higher education must do better for these students, and we believe that this starts with digital learning.

This panel of higher education professionals engaged in a provocative conversation about equitable teaching practices and digital learning that foster student-centered learning and cultivate a culture of inclusion.
