We will also interrogate the minimal and temporary means we have been given to address inequities, and the cost such an approach has for disabled students and faculty. Finally, we will explore how to design our own classrooms, in advance, in ways that anticipate and welcome different avenues for learning, means of expression, and modes of knowledge-creation.
