About Equity Pedagogy

For those unfamiliar with the term, equity pedagogy has been defined in a number of ways; one foundational definition we find helpful is that equity pedagogy encompasses the “teaching strategies and classroom environments that help students from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural groups attain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to function effectively within, and help create and perpetuate, a just, humane, and democratic society.”[1] For those who were not able to attend, our own Catherine Lucey gave an outstanding presentation describing the roots of equity pedagogy and the needs it serves at this year’s Education Showcase (see her presentation:

Our panel discussion will extend Dr. Lucey’s introduction to this topic, offering insights into how different organizations have incorporated concepts of equity pedagogy to improve the educational experiences of their learners. We hope the program will also connect with insights members have gained through their participation in the Differences Matters DEI Champion training, as well as with prior discussions we’ve had around DEI topics in the AME, including our introduction to H*E*A*LS at our Fall 2016 Meeting (December 2016).

Live Video Capture will be provided for our UCSF Fresno Campus and recording will be available for UCSF community via MyAccess. Please contact Karen Brent, CFE Communications Analyst for more information,
