Thinking about Equitable Assignment Design

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/16/2022)
Presented by Tracey Graney, PhD, MT(ASCP)

Providing equitable learning experiences for our students can remove barriers to learning and help diversify the laboratory profession. Using an Equity Protocol based on one from the School Reform Initiative, participants will have the opportunity to look at the design of their own assignments through an equity lens.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify assumptions that have been made about students when assignments are developed
  • Identify inclusive and/or potentially alienating elements of assignments
  • Develop an action plan to improve assignment design
