Inclusive Assessments for All Learners

through the Lens of Design Thinking

April 28, 2022

1:00 to 2:00PM Eastern Time

Via Zoom

The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing educational inequalities. How can we better serve our most vulnerable students, including neurodiverse learners? Join Drs. Therese Ajtum-Roberts and Lindsay Portnoy as they discuss the importance of knowing students and how they learn in order to help bring them along in their success journey. Dr. Ajtum-Roberts, who serves on the board of the New England Educational Research Organization (NEERO), will talk about her extensive work with faculty guiding instructors to create more inclusive learning environments. Dr. Portnoy, cognitive scientist and author of Designed to Learn: Using Design Thinking to Bring Purpose and Passion to the Classroom, will introduce design thinking as a lens for creating more equitable outcomes for our learners by invigorating teaching, learning, and assessment. This webinar will include time for questions from attendees.
