A Reflection on Personal Bias to Create an Inclusive Learning Environment

Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed several areas of student need. It has also revealed and magnified the societal failures that have caused inequities in our classrooms. Creating an inclusive digital space begins with self-work. This paper explores the role of color-blindness in society and how to counter its effects. Additionally, self-awareness as a means to strengthen cultural competency through practices like the racial autobiography and personal reflection are discussed. Furthermore, methods for speaking up against bias to address the inequities and challenges in the digital classroom are considered.
