ATD Teaching & Learning Institute: Student Voices Panel: Students Explore their Experiences with Culturally Responsive Teaching

What can we learn when students share their first-hand accounts of culturally responsive teaching practices and the impact on their learning experiences? As they observe within their courses, in addition to researching practices that center students’ cultural identities in college courses, what digital tools do they share and what are the strategies that faculty are using that students feel is impacting them and other learners? What interesting elements are they noticing in the classroom environment and interactions, material choices, activities, and assessments? Three students who are ATD fellows reflect upon these answers as they research and live culturally responsive teaching pedagogy.
