Activity 4.2 Dealing with diversity (Tue-Wed)

Our identities are complex, so we will always be able to identify differences and similarities in other people. Sometimes this feels difficult to manage as online facilitators, but access to a range of different perspectives can provide richer insights and deeper learning within a course or learning community.

Purpose: Developing skills to value and deal with diversity in online learning events


  1. Read the article by Jeanne Smuts 'Why diversity matters'.
  2. Join the discussion in the  'Dealing with Diversity' topic about the article on diversity in an online learning community. This will be facilitated by a participant in this course with the support of the course leader in a coaching role.
