There is a current growth of online learning in libraries, including online courses, virtual programming, online learning objects, and open education resources (OER). Another trend to emerge in libraries is inclusive teaching. Hockings (2010) defines inclusive teaching as “the ways in which pedagogy, curricula and assessment are designed and delivered to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant and accessible to all” (p. 1). The rise of these two trends in libraries shows the need for inclusive and accessible online practices in libraries. During this conversation starter, moderators will engage with questions such as what actions and steps do you take to make your teaching and design practices more inclusive? How is inclusive teaching online or instructional design similar or different to inclusive teaching in-person? Are there specific benefits and difficulties? What are some issues that have arisen in your teaching, online instruction, and design around being more inclusive? We will also share resources that can help with inclusive online teaching and design. Please join the NCLA Distance Learning Section sponsored Conversation Starter on best practices, challenges, and resources on this topic.
