TRACK: Faculty
Panel

Inspired by feminist principles, teaching should address the needs of all students, whatever their gender, race, minority status, academic savvy, and background. Panelists will discuss (and invite attendees to join the discussion on) how they strive for an equitable classroom using feminist teaching strategies, such as de-emphasizing power differentials, questioning whether traditional grading practices reflect students’ abilities, and creating an environment in which students feel safe to make mistakes.
