Are you interested in education and advocacy for more inclusive information systems in libraries, archives, and museums? The Design for Diversity project, supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, focuses on the ways in which information systems embody and reinforce cultural norms, asking how we can design systems that account for diverse cultural materials and ways of knowing. As part of this project we are building a collaborative pedagogical toolkit to encourage inclusive and ethical practices in information sciences and system design. It will include an expanding set of materials including sample assignments, curricular modules, suggested readings, and case studies, and the Digital Library Federation will eventually host the Toolkit as a growing community-driven resource.

Join us to hear about what we've learned through the past two years and give a thorough review to the draft teaching and learning Toolkit, which will be published in November 2018. The first day will provide a forum for a broad review of the Toolkit.

We also invite attendees interested in creating additional content for the Toolkit to apply to attend the Writing Sprint on the second day, August 24. Please apply separately for the Writing Sprint here: https://northeastern.libcal.com/event/4248938
