Inclusive and Effective College Science Classrooms: Engaging Students, Designing Lessons, and Integrating Diversity into Curriculum

Teaching diverse populations of students requires instructors to construct learning environments that are inclusive and effective. Workshop participants will share a common experience as the basis for discussing how different students may experience learning environments differently from one another. This workshop will also focus on teaching choices we make as instructors. Participants will explore their current approaches to planning and reflecting on their teaching, and will explore the 5E learning cycle model as an analytical tool for understanding teaching choices. Participants will also discuss integrating diversity into their curriculum through Scientist Spotlights, metacognitive homework assignments that have been shown to shift students' stereotypes of scientists and enhance science identity. Participants will leave with specific practical strategies to implement in their courses and programs.
