Cultural Competence in the World of Virtual Education

By Abner Oakes

ISA's National Director of Outreach and Engagement

While the pandemic has disrupted so much that we took for granted, such as our schools and the teaching and learning happening in them, many educators are doing what they can to stay connected to their students and to create nurturing environments for them, even as they are online.

In this webinar, which took place on May 13, 2020, ISA’s Dr. Ebony Green, Senior Director of Programs for Equity and Access, and Chanel Ward, Assistant Dean of Diversity at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York City, discuss the critical importance of infusing cultural competence, compassion, and empathy into this new virtual education space – qualities not only important for our young people but also for the educators serving them.
