Abstract

Online courses and programs have increased in enrollment across diverse demographics due to their accessibility and flexibility. Faculty roles currently include a commitment to meeting the learning needs of a diverse online classroom in order to positively impact student outcomes and retention. Engagement and retention are fostered when online communities support culturally relevant pedagogy that includes multimedia learning and assessment, choice, and interactive, guided dialoguing where students can express their personal cultural discourse and integrate their learning with their own cultural stance.
