About the session

We are excited to announce that Dr Sally Baker (UNSW) will deliver this seminar.

COVID-19 created many challenges for universities and continues to do so. It has magnified existing barriers for educational participation and revealed some unanticipated positive consequences for enhanced flexibility and more engaged learning. 

Based on a national study of the experiences of culturally and linguistically diverse migrant and refugee (CALDMR) students and educators in Australian higher education, this seminar will explore the opportunities and challenges of online teaching and learning with equity student cohorts from the analysis of data gathered with CALDMR students and university educators (including student-facing support staff and educational designers).

Tronto’s (1993, 2013) five ethics of care – attentiveness, responsibility, competence, responsiveness and trust – is used to consider how caring online is possible and what challenges we need to consider and work to overcome moving ahead.

A light afternoon tea will be provided from 3pm, with the seminar to commence at 3.15pm.
