Abstract

This paper describes the creation of an online diversity resources database using methods borrowed from meta-ethnography. The primary aim of this database, known as the Diversity Resources Database at Virginia Tech, is to provide print, media, and web-based resources relevant to developing diversity inclusive curricula and pedagogy. The goal of this paper is twofold. First, we will discuss the initial phases of the research process, including: identifying need, conceptualizing database, classifying selection rubric, creating database and expanding database resources. Secondly, we will provide a thematic, narrative analysis of the types of resources that have been included in this database thus far. In describing the database's creation as well as providing a narrative synthesis of the database holdings, we hope to provide an example of how qualitative research approaches can be used to create and evaluate a tool which can, in turn, be used as a resource for diversity inclusive teaching practices.
