Advances in instructional technology affords us the ability to foster social connections in diverse learning environments.

This webinar will cover:

  • The affordances and constraints of an award-winning, innovative hybrid course design model.
  • A use case of the implementation of the interactive presentation tool VoiceThread in an online cultural diversity course.
  • The impact of an online diversity course on students’ colorblind racial attitudes.
