Equity-Minded Teaching Institute
Dates: June 4-5, 2018
Location: LAX Crowne Plaza
Lodging: Los Angeles, CA
Why Equity-Minded Teaching?
There have always been classes where equity is the norm; where inequity was never allowed to take root. If our goal is to make a difference in the lives of students for whom higher education has been the least successful in educating, we must take into account the influence we hold as teachers. We must design and adopt pedagogy, curriculum, language, roles, routines, and symbols that foster equity as the norm. We must realize that our students, and ourselves, are capable.
The Institute for Equity-Focused Classrooms: The Center for Urban Education at USC’s Rossier School of Education will be hosting a two-day institute for faculty to actively redesign their own courses from an equity-minded perspective. Participants will develop the competence to create equitable classes based on CUE’s principles of Equity-Mindedness. Faculty from all disciplines are welcome.
