Digital Redlining Talk – March 14

Digital Redlining Talk

How can we understand equal access to technology and information in the digital age? Join us for a presentation on technology in education on Tuesday, March 14, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Broome Library, Room 1360.

Chris Gilliard explores how technology policies, practices, and investment decisions, especially in educational settings, create differential access and outcomes in colleges and universities. These processes, collectively understood as “digital redlining,” need to be understood and countered in order to create a more equitable educational structure.

Co-sponsored by Teaching & Learning Innovations and Project ALAS.
