STEMteachersNYC Summer STEM Institute 2020 - Dimensions of Cultural Responsiveness in STEM Application
PLEASE NOTE! We are at capacity for the first cohort of this workshop. All applicants will now be placed on a waitlist for a second cohort, dates TBD. Thank you!

This collaborative, 3-Day summer intensive VIRTUAL workshop running August 5-7, will build on STEMteachersNYC CRT Task Force programming and create a space for participants to work together to co-generate a set of contextualized outcomes. We are offering this workshop free to our NYC teachers and OST educators, through support provided by the Pinkerton Foundation.

The Dimensions of Responsiveness in STEM workshop will include a “Know Your Biases” module, with a focus on uncovering and characterizing teachers’ individual biases. Additional modules include grounding lessons in student perspectives, unpacking content and pedagogical biases, using a design thinking approach to resolving a problem of practice, and embedding a strategy to address issues of equity and/or to adapt a lesson or unit. We will also layer in discussion focused on tech tools in the larger context of remote learning, where we will use a framework to examine how online learning has potentially created new inequities or ameliorated existing ones in the science classroom.

The workshop is open to both classroom STEM teachers as well as out-of-school time (OST) educators in an effort to address context-specific challenges and to learn from each others’ experiences. By collaborating in this workshop, classroom and OST STEM educators will jointly build personal and shared reflection tools to foster Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Education practices in their lesson planning and execution. Participants will leave with a set of tools and strategies to revise lessons and units, and a catalogue of examples developed during the workshop by fellow participants.

Applications will be accepted through July 10, 2020. Seats will be awarded on a rolling basis. All workshops offer CTLE credit.
