In the Spring of 2021, Durham Tech's Creative and Liberal Arts Department (CALA) created a task force to explore best practices for inclusive and equitable online teaching. The task force worked to acquire research-based information and strategies and coined this undertaking the CALA Online Equity Project. The content provided within these pages is intended to provide you with knowledge, recommendations, and examples of equitable teaching practices that can be implemented in your own online classes.

To help understand the importance of teaching with equity in mind, it is recommended that you first explore implicit bias, then scroll down this page for information on strategies.
