Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve come across a number of useful (and generally short) resources on making online teaching and learning more accessible and equitable.

They range from suggestions about small tweaks that can be made at the level of the individual instructor/ class, to more strategic/ systemic considerations. I hope that you find them useful!
