In this interactive session, participants will explore word, example, and image choice - and the impact this can have on learners. Drawing on cultural, regional, socioeconomic, sexual, gender, racial, age, and other examples, participants will explore various uses of specific words and brainstorm other ways to present information in a way that is less targeted or implying a specific demographic. Using case studies, examples, and personal experiences, brainstorming and consideration of how it feels and how it can feel to others to feel targeted.
