Are you excited to teach in more diverse classrooms, but wish you had more resources? Or, are you seeking a different educational environment that honors the broad experience students can bring to the classroom?

If either of these ring true, we invite you to join Dougherty Family College faculty to learn more about culturally relevant pedagogy* (CRP). 

Research shows student success hinges on the ability for students to connect to the classroom and the materials presented. Creating a connection to the material allows students to maintain a sense of cultural integrity, a cornerstone of CRP and creating classrooms centered on CRP is a staple of the Dougherty Family College (DFC). Participants will leave with a better understanding of how to incorporate, and create space for, diverse voices in their classes and of ways to foster the development of critical consciousness.

Facilitated by: Emily Buehler (Justice and Peace Studies), Noah Gagner (Psychology), and April Gibson (English)
