Towards more inclusive active learning classrooms: Lecture

Location: Wentworth 1

Speaker: Dr. Sara Brownell, Association Professor, School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University

Abstract: To what extent do students experience college biology classrooms differently because of their social identities? How has transitioning traditional lecture courses to active learning spaces impacted students? What can instructors do to create more inclusive college biology classrooms? While there are well-established inequities in the representation of certain social identities in college biology courses, relatively little attention has been paid to possible inequities in the experiences of students in college biology courses.


This talk will highlight a collection of my studies that document novel, hidden inequities in college biology classrooms. It will focus on how the increased number of social interactions between students and instructors and among students in active learning classrooms can have both positive and negative impacts on students. Additionally, it will address possible underlying mechanisms for these inequities and highlight how mitigating these inequities can lead to a more diverse and inclusive scientific community. All are welcome!
