This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

In this talk with Bryan Dewsbury we will re-examine the role that a liberal, inclusive and equity-minded higher education can play in creating and sustaining a socially just society. We will consider the behaviors, attitudes, mindsets and strategies that create classrooms where students are prepared to be active participants in an evolving democracy. Agnostic to discipline, this pedagogy asks us to reconsider teaching as a humanistic enterprise, and as an explicit cultivation of developing empathetic and agentic students. Strategies for our own relearning and consideration will also be discussed.

Dewsbury is co-author of “The Norton Guide to Equity-Minded Teaching,” founder of the National Science Foundation-funded Deep Teaching Residency and associate director of Florida International University’s STEM Transformation Institute.
