Teaching for Equity in STEM

Professor Becca Price recently spoke at an event sponsored by the Graduate Society of Women Engineers at UW Seattle. The title of her talk was “Teaching equitably, fairly, and with justice.” During the presentation, she had a dynamic discussion with attendees about teaching by building from students’ strengths, using community cultural wealth and ethics of care as frameworks. She also briefly mentioned STEP-UP—the Science Teaching Experience Program for Upcoming PhDs—that gives graduate students the chance to learn and implement active and inclusive teaching strategies as they design and deliver an undergraduate seminar.
