Towards Anti-Racist Pedagogy

In this presentation, Professor of Physics James (Jim) Valles will describe his own teaching journey to align the the large physics course, Analytical Mechanics (Physics 70), with inclusive and anti-racist pedagogy. Borrowing from the work of Kyoko Kishimoto (2016), Jim will describe characteristics of an anti-racist course and modifications he made to better align Physics 70 with these characteristics, such as changes to assessments and learning activities. This session will be a 50-minute presentation, followed by Q&A. No prior knowledge of physics is needed! Please register for Zoom link.
