Issues of diversity, equity and inclusion are more visible on campuses across the country than in the recent past. In line with the ASBMB's mission to advance the science of biochemistry and molecular biology through support of science education at all levels and by promoting the diversity of individuals entering the scientific workforce, this workshop focuses on inclusive teaching of undergraduate and graduate students in classroom and laboratory settings, whether in person or online. Based on our forthcoming book, What Inclusive Instructors Do, we will provide evidence-based principles and practices from a national inclusive teaching study that can be used in various learning contexts. This workshop is designed to build your confidence in using inclusive teaching strategies in classroom and laboratory communities through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Identify DEI challenges facing teaching and learning in biochemistry and molecular biology classrooms.
- Identify DEI challenges facing teaching and learning in biochemistry and molecular biology research laboratories.
- Devise possible solutions suitable for in-person and remote contexts.
