Building Inclusive Learning Environments in STEM

Series: CTLT Institute

Event Description

This workshop focuses on how to make science more inclusive by incorporating historical and social context of scientific knowledge into course curriculum. We will present case studies from different STEM disciplines that illustrate how to provide historical context for course content and information. We will focus on highlighting contributors to discoveries who are often excluded and on acknowledging how legacies of oppression have shaped and continue to shape science. This workshop will be interactive and emphasize collective learning. We encourage participants to bring course syllabi and share how they have built inclusive learning environments.
