Culturally Responsive Practices to Advance Equity
Educators grapple with how to achieve their equity goals for students. A growing body of research points to the use of culturally responsive practices to advance equity. These practices aim to address social barriers believed to contribute to disparities in student outcomes. Using human-centered design principles, this workshop will help participants how to diagnose the challenges they face in achieving their equity goals while identifying steps they can take to accelerate their efforts.
