Join the IT@UofT community at this upcoming online event. To broaden our understanding of equity, diversity, and inclusion in our daily work, along with considerations such as indigenization, decolonization, and sustainability, we recognize the need to focus on less visible, yet highly impactful areas and processes. This webinar will delve into the implications of educational technology procurement, a key part of the institutional framework, through which students, staff, and faculty interact. Decisions regarding major technology systems carry significant long-term financial and cultural consequences, impacting resources during and beyond the procurement and implementation phases. The University of Windsor’s Office of Open Learning will share outcomes of a project exploring strategies to guide us in making ethical, equitable, and sustainable decisions when procuring technologies. Join us for a presentation by the project leads, discussing what they have learned about intersections of technology, ethics, and equity in educational tech procurement. This event is part of an ongoing program of activities coordinated by the IT@UofT Inclusivity Working Group.
