I would love feedback on how the activities provided for learning in the D&I realm. Do you think that this course could provide for substantive learning? Also, is the information to convoluted? Should I make the information more simplistic or accessible? Also, is there too much work involved?
I believe that I could improve on the course by getting to know Rampages’ functionality a bit more and how to incorporate social media platforms like Tumblr. I also want to improve on the LMS platform, I liked using Rampages because I was learning it for the purposes of this course. If I had more time I would explore many more LMS platforms and become trained in facilitation in each one that seemed relevant to my topic.
I would like my module to be evaluated on relevance and ease of use. Please let me know if the information was easy to access and time-friendly. My module was envisioned to be applied to people who are being trained in D&I (diversity and inclusion) as volunteer work. At my job at VCU, I was trained to be a D&I facilitator as an extra role that was added to my full-time job, even though D&I was not really relevant to the work I was already doing. In doing this, I remember how much stress the work load added to my already stressful job, and I was not compensated. I want this to provide for learning without adding too much to those participating. I wanted to add a lot of videos and some short readings to instill relevant information, without taxing my audience. That said, I also want the module to be effective in getting participants to think critically about D&I. It’s a lot to balance, but I think it’s important to be considerate to the realities of adult working schedules. Also, I wanted this course to be a module that gives D&I facilitators resources to use in their own facilitations. Lastly, I want this module to change how participants view their surroundings and question how they navigate these surroundings in terms of fostering more diversity, equity, justice and inclusion in their own contexts.
