Equity Focused Teaching for IAs
Session Format: Remote synchronous (Zoom)
Intended Audience: UG Instructional Aides
Facilitator: Blair Beuche, Elizabeth Levesque
Session Abstract: The importance of DEI in the engineering discipline is well established, yet little has been done to promote and explain equity. In this workshop participants will explore the history of engineering, be introduced to an equity-focused teaching definition, and explore how their social identities and those of their students affect their approaches to teaching and learning. Finally, participants will develop actionable strategies to recognize and disrupt patterns of systemic inequities and become agents of change in their classes.
