Abstract:

We present an introductory workshop on strategies for teaching science equitably and inclusively. The opening activity helps participants think about implicit bias and privilege; in the second half, participants discuss specific teaching practices to promote equity in their own science classrooms (based on work by Tanner 2013; Linse & Weinstein 2016).
