Faculty Commons (Room 286), J. Paul Leonard Library
College of Health & Sciences and SF BUILD
Co-hosted by the College of Health & Social Sciences' Teaching and Scholarship Task Forces and SF BUILD. With funding from SF BUILD, we developed a model that blends social justice pedagogy with the research on stereotype threat and critical mathematics, and applied it to undergraduate introduction to research classes. One of the interventions that we have developed involves a comprehensive review of the syllabus, the document that frames a class. In this workshop, we ask participants to bring along a syllabus for a course that they would like to tweak or transform, and use our syllabus check-in tool to raise questions about how social justice pedagogy can be infused throughout a course. Registration is limited to 25 participants. Refreshments will be served.
