a public lecture led by Angela Jenks, Medical Anthropologist and Associate Professor of Teaching in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine.

Professor Angela Jenks of UCI notes: "The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified long-standing inequities based in race, ethnicity, class, and ability. As faculty and students contend with the challenges of teaching and learning during this crisis, it is essential that we prioritize inclusive pedagogical practices. This presentation identifies common barriers to inclusive teaching and offers concrete strategies for designing courses, assignments, and class policies to create equitable and accessible learning environments for all students."
