Board, Card & Video Games for Inclusive & Intercultural Learning

This collection curates game-based approaches to fostering the basic elements of intercultural and inclusivity competence.  It includes board games, card games, a few free video games, and even a "Lego"-based approach to creating "aha" moments around privilege and identity. Many of them are also appropriate with or even designed for learners of pre-college ages (look for the tag K-12). Some come with downloadable materials and lesson plans.

Equity-Centered Assessment Instruments

According the Center for Urban Education, at USC, "The term “Equity-Mindedness” refers to the perspective or mode of thinking exhibited by practitioners who call attention to patterns of inequity in student outcomes. These practitioners are willing to take personal and institutional responsibility for the success of their students, and critically reassess their own practices. Practing Equity-Centered Assessment requires that practitioners are race-conscious and aware of the social and historical context of exclusionary practices in American Higher Education." 

In this collection, we highlight assessment tools that are designed to be explicitly conscious of race, ethnicity & the history of exclusionary practices in education, and therefore, to help the practitioner or the institution practice equity-minded assessment of student learning and the student experience.

Assessment for Social Justice Collection

According to McArthur (2016; see article within this folder):

"Assessment for social justice is a two-pronged concept.  It refers both to the justice of assessment within higher education, and to the role of assessment in nurturing the forms of learning that will promote greater social justice within society as a whole."

This collection includes definitions, models, a list of case studies, a list of suggested instruments, and more. Assessment for Social Justice is a relatively new area of professional practice which coalesced into a movement in North America in 2018.  It has a rich scholarly & theoretical history, however, dating back to at least 1977.

On-line Intercultural Learning Curriculum Resources

This collection gathers together  a variety of on-line instructional resources, most of them pre-existing courses, that support continued development of intercultural competence in a time of pandemic and study abroad cancellations. All resources have been "backwards-designed", e.g. they begin with specific learner outcome goals, most derived from the AAC&U intercultural knowledge and competence rubric, to advance through targeted intercultural exercises and reflective practice to guide the learner  towards intercultural and/or diversity-inclusion competence.
