Explore Student Engagement through an Equity Lens — Dr. Darryl Brice
“You can’t plant a seed without getting your hands dirty”
Many faculty members often replicate the types of teaching approaches they experienced as students. Consequently, they end up teaching the same way they were informed about how to teach. Unfortunately, many of those teaching methods are/were not inclusive or engaging for students in general and students of color specifically. Instead of reproducing those same problematic classroom environs, faculty can provide a more humanizing experience to teaching by approaching pedagogy through an equity lens. This presentation will consist of storytelling, research, and strategies that will assist others in creating equitable learning environments that are more engaging and inclusive than the ones we experienced when we were college students.
