Gateway STEM courses have a moral imperative to progress toward more equitable student engagement with the sciences. While efforts to reform classrooms are ongoing, quantitative data used in teacher reports can further propagate the marginalization and minoritization of specific student groups. The workshop will provide opportunities to understand the different factors that can create barriers for marginalized students in your classroom. The role of the affective domain in learning, and to discuss your pre-existing ideas about teaching and learning. The goals for this workshop are:

  • Increase participants' knowledge of a variety of classroom strategies to support marginalized students
  • Develop a more sophisticated understanding of the specific roles that the affective domain plays in STEM learning
  • Explore the interplay of student values and perceptions with your classroom goals and teaching beliefs
