NEean Webinar Series on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

NEean is pleased to announce its second webinar series focusing on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.  These webinars are free to NEean members and cost $10 for non-members.  Details on the first two events are provided below.

What does it mean to be competent in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?

In this workshop we will discuss the concepts of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) as “competencies”, and introduce a rubric developed at Champlain College to define DEI for the campus.  Conceptualizing DEI as an academic literacy allowed the Champlain community to consider how these concepts appear in classes and elsewhere; how they encompass skills and habits of mind that can be learned.  But defining DEI in higher education contexts presents some challenges for assessment and for the higher education context, which inherently values intellectual openness. This workshop examines how the definition and rubric were developed, how they have been used, and some of the complex issues of defining and assessing DEI in higher education.

August 4th from 1:00 to 2:00PM Eastern Time

Applying Indigenous Knowledge Systems for Equity-Centered Assessment

Higher education, and thus assessment, have been influenced by colonizing practices built upon dominant Western paradigms of knowledge creation. This colonization has minimized non-dominant ways of knowing and contributed to inequitable outcomes for students. To center equity in assessment practice, Indigenous knowledge systems (IKS) can be integrated to ground assessment in an ethos of equality and liberation. In this session, presenters will argue for the adoption of IKS in assessment practice. In doing so, they will articulate the tenets and characteristics of IKS, describe the benefits of using IKS, and lead a discussion regarding ways to apply IKS to each step in the assessment cycle. Participants will leave with concrete knowledge and applicable strategies to use in their own work.
