Journal Club Winter 2017 Week 1

11th January 2017 at 10:26 am

This term on Thursdays at 9am we will explore equity and inclusion in STEM education.

Starting Week 1 we ask you to read:
Killpack & Melón 2016 (CBE) + Rumbarger 2016 (theory and practice)
Killpack, TL and LC Melón. (2016). Toward Inclusive STEM Classrooms: What Personal Role Do Faculty Play?  CBE Life Sci Educ 15:es3http://www.lifescied.org/content/15/3/es3.full.pdf+html

And

Rumbarger, L. (2016). Inclusive Teaching: Part One of Highlights from TEP’s ‘Belonging’ Series. http://tepblog.uoregon.edu/blog/index.php/inclusive-teaching-part-one-of-highlights-from-teps-belonging-series/

As you are reading, we’d like you to keep this definition of inclusive teaching from Magee (2016) in mind. “At the level of the classroom, inclusivity refers to the philosophy and pedagogy of engaging and valuing every student, and seeking to enhance the relational dynamics of the class as a whole, by intentionally attending not merely to the intellectual but also to the social and emotional climate of the classroom. In recognition of the fact that our classrooms exist and are constructed within broad cultural, social and political contexts, and that higher education has not traditionally been equally accessible or welcoming to all, the aim is to enlist each teacher in the ongoing work of making each classroom maximally effective as a learning space for each and every student, and for the class as a whole. Classrooms grounded in inclusivity are classrooms where each student encounters not only a course, but a classroom environment that has been intentionally shaped to enhance his or her sense of inclusion and safety, and a teacher, regardless of the subject matter, who is committed to the principles and practices of inclusivity.”

Magee, Rhonda V. “The Way of ColorInsight: Understanding Race and Law Effectively Through Mindfulness-Based ColorInsight Practices.” Forthcoming in The Georgetown Law Journal of Modern Critical Race Perspectives, Spring 2016. Draft December 20, 2015.

Fridays at 1pm will explore practical approaches to improving science communication using the book Olson, R. (2015). “Houston, We Have a Narrative: Why Science Needs a Story” University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London.  For Week 1 please read pages 1-21 of the book.

Hope to see you there.
