This course has been developed with Cia Verschelden from the American Association of Colleges and Universities, USA, and it includes short videos, activities, and discussion prompts. It is part of a series on Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources. When completed you will:
- Understand the concept of bandwidth – cognitive capacity – and the ways in which it is depleted by poverty, racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, and other ‘differentisms.’
- Understand that the social realities of students in certain groups can result in their arriving to college/university with limited bandwidth for learning.
- Realise that there are classroom strategies that can help students recover and learn about a few of them.
