Short Description

Bias may be the buzz word of the year. How does it extend beyond race and culture? Would it even surprise you that gender and age bias is inherent in higher education? Let's discuss the source and the solution.

Abstract

As we move out of the classroom and into the world of digital learning, would you be even more surprised that gender and age bias is alive and well in online learning - especially at a time when people can seemingly hide behind the computer screen? How does the online environment affect not only the teacher-student bias but student-student interactions, attrition rates and gaps in achievement? What are the immediate impacts that are felt in the State of Florida with our large multi-cultural and varied student population? What can be done about it?

Join us in a unique presentation and discussion where the session will allow you to take away solutions to all the unanswered questions. Learn how to spot your own biases and those of your institutions, and find out what you CAN do in the immediate to solve these ingrained behaviors NOW!
