Improving Curriculum to Facilitate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
This webinar shares research on curriculum equity. The facilitator provides examples of how equity can be facilitated in the classroom by allowing students to choose their own research topics, studying Black authors and businesspeople, and by studying international authors and businesspeople based on the nationalities of the students in the class. A small panel of students speak as well and are available for questions on the day of the webinar.
- Participants are inspired to improve their curriculum by incorporating current research on equity in the curriculum.
- Participants garner ideas from activities the facilitator has done in her classroom to promote equity.
- Participants hear students’ perspectives about what equity in the classroom should look like.
