CIRTL Network YouTube Channel

CIRTL (Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning) has a series of YouTube videos from March 2020 that discuss inclusion, engagement, and student assessment for online synchronous courses. Two are linked below; one video discusses teaching inclusively in the online learning classroom, and the other discusses reducing barriers to online learning. These videos mostly focus on synchronous classes that are virtual due to extenuating circumstances, rather than classes that are designed to be virtually synchronous or asynchronous. However, this could still provide some relevant information for instructors.

Adaptability to Online Learning: Differences Across Types of Students and Academic Subject Areas

This is a study utilizing a large, pre-existing dataset of 40,000 community and technical college students. The study was published in 2014, however this data could still be relevant for faculty who aim to increase racial and ethnic inclusion, due to its findings of certain groups struggling to adapt to online learning, particularly black students.

Race, Ethnicity and Old Age: Re-animating Ageing Bodies of Colour

“In this presentation, Dr Rajan-Rankin explores new ways in which we can theorize race, ethnicity and old age from an inter-disciplinary lens. Drawing on cultural gerontology (especially embodied ageing studies) and post-colonial perspectives on ageing; she explores how an emphasis on the body and embodiment can serve as a conceptual lens for understanding racialized ageing bodies. A tentative framework for analysis is proposed. The concept of exile explores how bodies of colour and older bodies are denigrated through the hegemonic (white, youth-centred, masculinist) gaze. Re-animation can take place by transcending double-consciousness: ‘seeing beyond’ the dominant gaze. Othering and otherness are explored in relation to both raced and ageing bodies. The limits of ethnic ageing is scrutinized at an epistemic level, simultaneously informing, and obscuring the understanding of lived experiences of racialized ethnic minorities in old age. De-coloniality is considered, especially by drawing on feminist approaches which challenge consumption cultures that perpetuate whiteness and ageist/ ableist discourses. Visible and invisible difference provide a way of unpacking the simultaneous hypervisibility of older (female) bodies of colour, and their invisibility in institutional and policy discourses. The presentation concludes with some provocations around the limits of intersectionality and whether a shift away from the Anthropocene to the assemblage, can resolve some of these tensions.”
