CIRTL Brownbag Coffee Hour Series: Leveraging Diversity

"Diverse Students' Views on Leveraging Diversity in STEM"

Date and Time: April 24, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM


Online Presenter: Dr. Ashanti Johnson, University of Texas at Arlington

Student and faculty diversity in the college classroom contributes to students' academic development and their abilities to work in diverse environments. College faculty must create opportunities for students to interact with diverse peers on an equal status basis, and in order to do so, faculty need to gain knowledge of how to create complex instructional activities that facilitate learning in diverse environments. Dr. Ashanti Johnson will lead a discussion with students from different racial and ethnic backgrounds to shed light on learning environments that led to positive outcomes for them.

Northwestern University is a part of the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) Network. CIRTL strives to advance teaching in the STEM disciplines by providing professional development programs for future faculty. CIRTL programs are open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty.
