Diversity, equity, and inclusion should be a central component in all aspects of education. However, achieving equity and social justice in science education continues to be an ongoing challenge for classroom educators, especially when considering the connections between racial injustice and the environment and climate change.
Additionally, students from disenfranchised communities often face "opportunity gaps" in their educational experience. As we try to promote equitable learning environments for ALL students, science and STEM educators must recognize and reposition students who have been historically disadvantaged and underserved, so they become actively engaged participants in science learning.
Educators have a unique opportunity to celebrate the experiences of each student as well as the values their communities bring to science and STEM teaching.
The one-price registration includes attendance to all four (4) parts of the miniseries. You can opt to attend all four of the 2.5-hour Saturday sessions; drop in on one (or more sessions), or view them as your schedule permits. The last 30 minutes of each session will be a roundtable discussion for participants to ask additional questions and/or share their own experiences and stories.
Registrants will be able to access the recorded program for 90 days after the miniseries ends.
