Upcoming Events

Title:Design for Diversity: Toolkit Review Forum Day One
Date:Thursday, August 23, 2018
Time:All Day Event
Categories:Digital Scholarship
Registration:Registration is required for this event.
Description:

Please save the date for the second public event in the Design for Diversity project: August 23 and 24, 2018 in the Raytheon Amphitheatre in the Egan Building at Northeastern University.

The Design for Diversity project, supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, focuses on the ways in which information systems embody and reinforce cultural norms, asking how we can design systems that account for diverse cultural materials and ways of knowing. As part of this project we are building a collaborative pedagogical toolkit to encourage inclusive and ethical practices in information sciences and system design. It will include an expanding set of materials including sample assignments, curricular modules, suggested readings, and case studies, and the Digital Library Federation will eventually host the Toolkit as a growing community-driven resource.

Join us to hear about what we've learned through the past two years and give a thorough review to the draft teaching and learning Toolkit, which will be published in November 2018.
