Culturally Responsive Pedagogy: Faculty Learning Community Summer 2021

June 1

Free
Essentials of Being a Scholarly Teacher: Academic Equity

June 1 – August 22, 2021

Description

Our chancellor has given us the challenge of eliminating our equity gaps by 2030. How can we, as instructors, shift our teaching practices to meet this goal? One promising path is to ground those practices in Culturally Responsive Pedagogy. In this course, we’ll have the opportunity to examine how well our current practices align with the central tenets of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy. CRP advocates that good teaching draws on the knowledge and skill our students bring to the classroom, creates supportive relationships that allow students to take learning risks, and prepares students to challenge barriers to their full flourishing. In this course we will give and get support for deepening our CRP practices.

All participants will receive the e-book for Zaretta Hammond’s Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain, which will be an option reading for the short course. Details for acquiring a free version of this e-book will be sent to participants.

  • incorporate those central tenets into course outcomes, materials, assessments, activities, syllabi, and relationships,
  • identify interconnections between implicit bias, microaggressions, trauma, structural racism, stereotype threat, and course success,
  • use our increased skills at CRP to share with, support, and encourage other faculty learners to increase everyone’s skills at CRP,
  • trace how our values have changed and/or deepened through engaging in course, and
  • create a professional development plan for making next steps on the journey of culturally responsive teaching.

Training Goals:

The training aims to increase student success and decrease equity gaps by supporting our work to:

  • draw on the knowledge and skill our students bring into the classroom,
  • create supportive relationships that allow students to take learning risks,
