The Global Society of Online Literacy Educators, an organization dedicated to supporting hybrid and online teacher-scholars, invites you to submit proposals for our upcoming Webinar Series: Cross-Cultural Rhetorics and Linguistic Diversity in Online Literacy Instruction.
In the wake of the impact of COVID-19, educators more than ever need access to inclusive approaches to online literacies education. Our webinar series this year will therefore continue on our theme from last year’s Webinar series of Anti-Racist and Linguistically diverse practices in Online Writing Instruction. This year’s webinar series is especially interested in recruiting presenters who can speak to culturally responsive online education across borders. Our particular goal is to expand our conversation from the background of systemic racism in the US to include more global insights regarding inclusive approaches to online literacies education. We invite
researchers worldwide who work with issues of translanguaging, code-meshing, or other linguistically oriented approaches to inclusive education, particularly in post-secondary education contexts where some (or most) students come from culturally or systematically disenfranchised linguistic backgrounds.
GSOLE's webinars are designed to spark conversation, provide professional development, share ideas, and build community. This past year, our webinars have reached an average audience of 70 or more attendees, and webinar recordings are made available to GSOLE members in an online archive. Webinar leaders are also encouraged to transform their webinar topics into ROLE or OLOR publications. We welcome proposals that include a single webinar leader or a group of 2-3 leaders.
In the 2021-2022 Webinar series, we plan to offer 4 different webinars depending on submissions.
These hour-long webinars are designed to bring literacy educators together for conversations about a range of issues, including, but not limited to:
The 2021-2022 series will include at least four webinars, tentatively scheduled for September, November, February, and April. In your proposal, please include the following:
