Culturally Responsive Pedagogy in Higher Education

Workshop Description:

In this interactive workshop, participants will unpack how to create an inclusive and culturally-aware classroom by integrating Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP) into their teaching.  We’ll discuss different components of CRP, the importance of integrating students’ cultural assets into classroom learning, and share strategies to begin using equitable and culturally responsive teaching practices. Additionally, we will take time to discuss why it is important for instructors to engage students’ interests, skills, and knowledge to create a classroom community and enhance students’ motivation to learn.
