“Welcome to The Norton Guide to Equity-Minded Teaching. This guide is an invitation to join faculty from across the country and globe who strive to realize more equitable outcomes for students. Knowing firsthand that faculty life is busy and complex—and that those who share this mission are often hard-pressed for resources and time—we’ve curated findings on inclusion and student success from scholars and practitioners in varied fields. We have also prioritized practical application. After all, even when we know something isn’t quite right in our class and want to make it better—when we want to be intentional about advancing more equitable outcomes—it’s not always clear what we can or should do. And, since online learning and educational technology are now ubiquitous, we have infused modality and technology considerations and guidance throughout. . . .”
