Culturally Responsive Pedagogy: Spring 2022

March 21, 2022

Free
Essentials of Being a Scholarly Teacher: Academic Equity

March 21 – April 10, 2022

Short Course

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.

Course Learning Objectives 

Through engaging in the work of the training, faculty will be able to: 

  • explain to others the central tenets of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy,
  • gain ideas for how to incorporate those central tenets into course outcomes, materials, assessments, activities, syllabi, and relationships,
  • identify interconnections between microaggressions, structural racism, stereotype threat, and course success,
  • use our increased knowledge of 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.
