While much attention has been paid to inclusion and equity in higher ed classrooms along the lines of race/ethnicity, (dis)ability, and sexual orientation, the area of gender is one that is still often left out of the conversation. Drawing on the data from their recent book, Teaching Girls, Drs. Peter Kuriloff and Charlotte Jacobs will present pedagogical practices and curricular strategies that educators can employ in the higher education classroom to develop a gender conscious stance and create a more equitable classroom space. Workshop participants will create their own action plans connected to developing a gender conscious classroom.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Education department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
