Fireside Chat on Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Online Education
As online education becomes more widespread, it is vital to ensure that it supports the success of marginalized students. In this conversation, leaders Dr. Sue Subocz and Dr. Nina McCune discuss how a new book is sharing Walden’s depth of experience providing broad access to online education.
Over the past two decades, online degree programs have grown primarily as an option for adult learners. Then the COVID-19 pandemic made it essential across higher education.
Although universities have made important strides to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus, that hasn’t always translated to their online programs and student support. To share Walden’s 20-plus years of experience providing broad access to online higher education, more than 20 faculty members from the university and other experts collaborated to publish a new book, Advancing DEI and Creating Inclusive Environments in the Online Space.
In this video, Dr. Sue Subocz, associate president and provost, and book editor Dr. Nina McCune, associate dean for inclusive teaching and learning, discuss the pressing need to make online education more inclusive—and how Walden is approaching the challenge.
