Porvu Center Lightning Talk: Using Namecoach to Learn Students’ Names and Pronouns

Since Spring of 2019, Namecoach has allowed students to enter their preferred pronouns as well as the pronunciation of their names on their Student Information Page. Canvas currently displays this information on the Photo Roster and will soon allow students to view it for their classmates as well.  Presented by Maria Trumpler. View on YouTube.
