DEE 502 Equity and Inclusion in Engineering Education

In this seminar, you will learn to understand, identify and implement best practices in equity and inclusion within the engineering classroom. Although engineering has often been conceived of as a site of neutral instruction and learning, faculty engaged in teaching engineering can promote diversity, inclusion and equity through their language use, their classroom instruction, and their approach to curricular design. This course introduces students to strategies for building an inclusive classroom and challenges students to consider the role of engineering instruction in the retention of all students and in fostering underrepresented minority students? abilities to thrive.
