Focus on Diversity & Pedagogy in the Online Environment

Boozhoo! Welcome to the Diversity Module of your D4Learning experience. I am Loriene Roy (Anishinabe), Professor in the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin. I am enrolled on the White Earth Reservation and am a member of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.

You may read more about me in an article I wrote on how my culture influences my work for an international journal. The article is attached here as a PDF. We will revisit this article later as you start to explore the place of diversity in your work
