Strategies of Equitable Teaching

Wednesday, April 1, 2020 - 12:00pm

Room 345, Penn Museum

Inclusive Teaching practices aim to help all of our students thrive to the best of their abilities and produce equitable outcomes in the anthropology classroom. Recognizing that identities shape the experiences of Penn students, how can those facets of identity most salient to our students (race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, nationality, and other backgrounds) not only be valued in the classroom, but leveraged as strengths for learning? This workshop considers evidence-based teaching strategies for increasing academic belonging, improving transparency, and creating course structures that support more equitable learning - particularly for our underrepresented students.
