In this blog, Sue Cowley shares her ideas about the range and diversity, (or lack thereof) in the online education world.
Most of the well known writers and speakers in education are white men. It’s been like that since I began writing education books, more than 15 years ago, and it’s still that way now. Although I can easily collect 100 female education authors by doing a shout out on Twitter, I still see mostly white male authors in book reviews, and in the press. This is not to blame the white guys; it’s not their fault. It is a bit bizarre, though, given that teaching is a majority female profession. And it’s also a shame. Because if the blogs we follow, the books we review and the people we quote are mostly one gender/race, then we miss a trick. We don’t get to hear different voices.
