Culturally Responsive Pedagogy: Fall 2021 (3 week short course)

November 1

Free
Essentials of Being a Scholarly Teacher: Academic Equity

November 1 – November 21, 2021

This short course was previously scheduled for September 27 – October 17

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 introductory 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 increase our knowledge of some foundational CRP practices.

Training expectations are weekly short readings and weekly contributions to asynchronous discussions focused on how we might incorporate CRP into our teaching practices. All participants will receive a copy of Zaretta Hammond’s Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain, which will be an option reading for the short course.
