What impact do race and gender have in the science classroom? In this workshop, designed by Physics graduate students for TFs in STEM disciplines, we interrogate the definitions of race and gender in the US to understand how these categories have shaped the scientific community. Informed by our critical analysis of these definitions, we discuss ways to cultivate supportive learning environments, and what we can do as teaching fellows to make science more equitable, both in the classroom and beyond.
This workshop is a part of Winter Teaching Week- a series of intensive workshops offered during J-Term in conjunction with January@GSASfor graduate student teachers at every stage, from just starting out to looking toward the job market.
Led by Abigail Plummer, Delilah Gates and Scott Collier, Graduate Students in Physics
