Poster Description: This presentation focuses on content and structure choices that are possible in online tutorials to create inclusive, welcoming learning environments even without the benefits of personal interaction. I focus on several techniques I have used in recent tutorials including recasting all examples and questions to feature gender neutral language, deliberately centering my examples around diverse scholars, and using the audiovisual affordances of the tutorial format to make these representations visual and aural as well as textual. Because this presentation comes as much out of my own desire for better practice as my advice, it also includes an interactive space for participants to share their own ideas and practices and crowd share more ideas to make tutorials more inclusive.
