PLAN Workshop: "I Just Treat Everyone the Same": Moving from Equality to Equity in the Classroom
As educators, we have a professional obligation to treat our students fairly, so it is natural to think that this means treating everyone the same. This workshop will explore the multiple ways that the assumptions we make as teachers can privilege certain groups while disadvantaging others. We will see that when we fail to critically examine these assumptions, treating everyone the same will not lead to an equitable learning environment. This workshop will be held Monday, September 23 from 2-3pm in Houchens 105. Graduate students can find more information and register on the PLAN website.
