Inclusive Remote Learning Practices
The Resource Center for Sexual & Gender Diversity has created a resource guide on "Trans and Nonbinary Inclusive Remote Learning Practices" for faculty and teaching assistants at UCSB. The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected many students' ability to be academically successful for a variety of reasons. This is especially true for trans, nonbinary, and gender non-confirming students. Thanks to Brittney Dinelli for sharing this resource; please take time to read it and incorporate what you can into your own teaching practices.
