Digital Inclusion and Decision Making

Members $125/Non-members $250

NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.

I like it when there is a practical tool presented to help with the execution of a plan or to visualize something.

How can we measure digital inclusion in a community? This course will discuss digital inclusion and its dimensions and consider data tools that will help you make good decisions with digital inclusion in mind.

The objective is to provide participants with a better understanding of the data tools available to assess the digital inclusion landscape, and how those can inform our decisions around advancing digital equity in your community.
