On The Chronicle of Higher Education, Assistant Director of Educational Technology at Yale University Michelle Morgan asks education professionals to consider the historical bias toward printed text, and to look for opportunities to consider alternative methods of delivering course materials.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Yale University sponsors a series of workshops to inspire feelings of inclusion among staff. One session, called “OUCH!
