Teaching for Equity: Power, Privilege, and Identity in the Classroom

Date: 

Friday, February 24, 2017, 1:00pm to 5:00pm

Location: 

Science Center 300H

How do oppressive structures outside of the classroom play out in section discussions? How do questions of race, gender, class, and sexuality impact classroom dynamics? This workshop, which was created in response to demand for an extended treatment of these questions, is geared toward TFs and others who lead discussion sessions with students. We will work to refine our awareness of how structural inequality impacts the classroom, deepen our vocabularies for analyzing its effects, and strategize ways to foster equity through our pedagogy. This half-day workshop will provide groundwork for a series of more informal follow-up conversations over the course of Spring semester.  

Lunch will be provided.

We invite attendees to submit specific scenarios of challenging moments that they have experienced and would like to workshop in the session (although having a scenario is not a requirement for participation).  Registration is mandatory.  Please register here.
