Activity: Spend 1 week taking notes on your experiences and environment in college (classes, assignments, interactions, Zoom, etc.). Use the notes you take and categorize them into 2 groups: 1) experiences/examples that you would consider accessible, were helpful, and/or that promoted your learning, and 2) experiences/examples that you would consider inaccessible and created a barrier or difficulty to your learning.
In your discussion specifically address:
- Provide a summary of which examples and experiences from the week you consider accessible, helpful, and that promoted your learning
- Provide a summary of which examples and experiences from the week you would consider inaccessible, unhelpful, and that created a barrier or difficulty to your learning
- In what ways do your examples support or challenge Dolmage’s chapter on retrofits? Explain.
