Faculty Bootcamp on Teaching Inclusive Design in Technology and Design Classes
Come learn about and discuss trends we are noticing with new-hires at tech companies like Google, Microsoft, Oath, Adobe, and Facebook. Learn about examples and techniques you can use in your own classrooms (programming, design, testing, etc.) to best prepare your students to create inclusive experiences that not only increase their employability after graduation, but also motivate them to create innovative breakthroughs in making technology work better for everyone.
