In this episode, Marcella Gemelli, Online Graduate Program Director of Sociology and Senior Lecturer in the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics, sits down to discuss her course, SOC 334, Technology and Society, with Matthew Robinson, Media Manager of the EdPlus Studios. Marcella intentionally includes and promotes the JEDI principles, Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, in this course and we are excited to share her approach and passion for these principles.
Marcella’s dedication to the JEDI principles is exemplary. She discusses what it means to mindfully seek and promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in course design. She provides some wonderful examples of how faculty and designers can also apply these principles to their own courses.
The episode reveals that it takes an intentional approach to really make an impact in this important space of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in all courses. With the help of the ASU Online Course Design Standards, all faculty are encouraged to consider how justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion can be incorporated into any course.

Enjoy this example Marcella provided on one project helping bridge the equity and inclusion gap in learning.
T-Mobile 1 Million Project – Rewind, addressing the Homework Gap. This is an excellent example of how lack of access to tech (a basic need now for educational success) can be addressed through a tech company willing to take on a social problem.
