Exploring Inclusive Curricula in the College Classroom: Scientist Spotlight Homework Assignments
From depictions in television shows and movies to their experiences in college classes themselves, students recurrently encounter stereotypes that often convey a narrow view of who participates in our fields of study. What are the impacts of these messages on students and what might faculty do in response to this messaging? In this interactive workshop, attendees will reflect on the impacts of stereotypes in their fields, examine Scientist Spotlight homework assignments as a research-based intervention to shift students' stereotypes, and consider implementation strategies for spotlight-type assignments in a wide array of course types and subject areas.
