Social Justice Pedagogy Workshop

Thursday, April 27, 2017 - 3:30pm to 6:00pm
Library Faculty Commons

Location: LIB 286, Faculty Commons

With funding from SF BUILD, a project to increase the number of underrepresented students in the STEM pipeline, 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. 

Presenters: Nicole Bolter, Assistant Professor, Kinesiology; Jocelyn Hermoso, Associate Professor, Social Work; Sherria Taylor, Assistant Professor, Consumer & Family Studies/Dietetics; Juliana van Olphen, Associate Professor, Health Education; and Maria Veri, Associate Professor, Kinesiology.

Co-hosted by CHSS Teaching and Scholarship Taskforces and SF BUILD
