Setting Optimal Conditions for Deep Learning
Join Tigist Amdemichael on a self-reflective journey as you explore your approach to culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy. Explore how to create optimal conditions for Black youth to thrive in STEM through inclusive, inquiry-based learning. Challenge yourself to confront thought-provoking, reflective questions, and learn new application-focused strategies for promoting positive STEM identities for Black students.
Led by Tigist Amdemichael, this recorded workshop breaks down the value of inclusive inquiry-based learning driven by culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy for Black youth in STEM and the senior sciences. Find out how the works of Dr. Zaretta Hammond, Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings and bell hooks can inform your approach to creating more stories of Black excellence in STEM.
Recorded on February 10, 2022. While all educators are welcome to watch, this workshop has been designed for educators teaching or interested in teaching a senior division.
