SET Spring 2021 - The Balancing Act: Teaching While Juggling Issues of Diversity at a Predominantly White Institution
From Craig Clarkson
Although teaching courses centered on issues of diversity is more important today than ever before, it is not without challenges. In today’s racially and politically polarized nation, faculty colleagues from the Department of Curriculum and Instruction embrace these opportunities to spur meaningful dialogue and effectuate change through culturally sustaining pedagogies. This session features a panel discussion about teaching diversity courses under three different perspectives (White male, White female, and Black female), but with the same goals: critical inquiry, social justice and advocacy, and education for freedom. Following the discussion, the presenters will share specific ideas for how to support, recruit, and retain both students and faculty of color.
