The transition to online instruction and student services in response to COVID-19 presents a substantial challenge for most postsecondary institutions. Among the most pervasive challenges are issues with racial bias and racial microaggressions that serve to impede the student experience. In an environment typified by time constraints, stress, and the unknown – racial strife is at an all-time high. This webinar will focus on strategies that educators can use to address issues of bias and microaggressions in order to meet the needs of historically underrepresented and underserved students in the online environment. The conversation will be facilitated by Drs. Frank Harris III and J. Luke Wood.
