The UW-Madison Office of Inclusion Education and UW-Madison Libraries have partnered to develop two online micro-courses to expand your knowledge of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). These non-graded, self-paced and interactive professional learning objects aim to expand learners’ knowledge of social justice, including race in your classroom and facilitating discussions around racial topics.
The two new courses are:
- Reflecting on Social Justice Foundational Concepts – This micro-course focuses on some of the foundational concepts helpful for fostering deeper self-awareness and understanding of other social justice topics. This developmentally sequenced course is intended as a place for reflection on one’s own experience at a pace that feels manageable to each person who completes it. Lessons include social identity, socialization, implicit bias, and micro-messaging. If you are already familiar with some of these concepts, challenge yourself to consider them from new angles or identities.
- Including and Navigating Race in the Classroom – This micro-course focuses on the importance of diverse representation in classroom materials, integrating materials into courses, and facilitating conversations around racial topics. This developmentally sequenced course is intended as a starting point for an iterative process of continuous development on best practices for inclusive classrooms. The level of content in this micro-course is appropriate for graduate students and staff

Web and Document Accessibility for Virtual Programming
Heather Stelljes and Keven Graeme
Kevin Graeme of Educational Technology Support and Heather Stelljes of Office of Access, Inclusion, and Compliance join forces to share information on creating accessible and inclusive document and web programming for participants with disabilities. Being thoughtful about disability access is a practice that benefits all users, learners, and participants, while also being a hard-fought federal mandate for the Division of Extension. In this breakout, we’ll cover the legal mandates for disability accommodations and accessibility by sharing broad information on apparent and non-apparent disabilities. We’ll share examples of inclusive practices in the virtual environment and demonstrate how to ensure accessibility. Additional resources to create online and document accessibility will also be shared.
