Abstract

Research has shown that factors such as race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status can have a significant impact on a student’s ability to complete a college degree. As our classrooms become more culturally and experientially diverse, what can we as faculty do to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed? There is a growing body of research that identifies issues that low-income, first-generation, underrepresented minority, and international students face and describes tested strategies for helping students overcome them. Our goal in this workshop is share these findings with faculty and empower them to adapt and integrate relevant strategies into their own teaching. Specifically, our goals for this workshop are to: Inform faculty about scholarship and emerging practices relating to diversity and equity in the classroom Invite them to reflect on their current practice Provide an opportunity to develop a plan for integrating insights from scholarship into their own teaching Foster the development of learning communities for faculty interested in continuing the conversation beyond this workshop

Teaching for Diversity and Equity: Scholarship and Practice

Dalton 1

Research has shown that factors such as race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status can have a significant impact on a student’s ability to complete a college degree. As our classrooms become more culturally and experientially diverse, what can we as faculty do to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed? There is a growing body of research that identifies issues that low-income, first-generation, underrepresented minority, and international students face and describes tested strategies for helping students overcome them. Our goal in this workshop is share these findings with faculty and empower them to adapt and integrate relevant strategies into their own teaching. Specifically, our goals for this workshop are to: Inform faculty about scholarship and emerging practices relating to diversity and equity in the classroom Invite them to reflect on their current practice Provide an opportunity to develop a plan for integrating insights from scholarship into their own teaching Foster the development of learning communities for faculty interested in continuing the conversation beyond this workshop
