SciComm Lunch & Learn – Inclusive Communication in the Science Classroom
September 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The most effective teachers do more than simply communicate facts and information. They create a sense of belonging for their students – every student – and empower them to grow and thrive in their learning environment. What are the strategies underlying this inclusive teaching style and how can it be implemented in a science classroom?
Join us for our first SciComm Lunch-and-Learn of the new academic year (and the first-ever virtual Lunch-and-Learn), when Drs. Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy of UNC-Chapel Hill will share their insight on Inclusive Science Communication in the Classroom. They have collaborated on critical research in this area and co-authored multiple publications, including an important and widely cited article entitled “How to Make Your Teaching More Inclusive,” which appeared in The Chronicle of Higher Education in July of 2019.
Dr. Kelly Hogan is a STEM Teaching Professor in Biology and Assoc. Dean of Instructional Innovation at UNC-Chapel Hill. She received her Ph.D. in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine from UNC. Dr. Viji Sathy is a Professor of the Practice of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC-Chapel Hill. She received her Ph.D. in Psychometrics from UNC.
Those of you who are familiar with Duke Science & Society’s “SciComm Lunch-and-Learn” series know that in a pre-pandemic world, we held these events in person and provided pizza for all. Regrettably, COVID-19 has turned this into a virtual, “BYO Lunch-and-Learn” (and, those of you in earlier time zones are encouraged to make this a “BYO Brunch-and-Learn”). The silver lining is that we can now include speakers and audience members from literally all over the world, so please tell your friends and colleagues about this series!
