Beyond Inclusion: Teaching for civic engagement and participation

In this first of four 2023 Strategies for Success webinars, Dr. Bryan Dewsbury helps participants explore the ways in which we can reconnect our classroom practice with the values, behaviors and mindsets needed for a socially just society. We will draw on examples from history to make the case for a more explicit pedagogy, with examples from an introductory STEM course, demonstrating how these practices prepare students for all forms of social participation.

Dr. Dewsbury is an Associate Professor of Biology and the principal investigator of the Science Education and Society research program at Florida International University, which focuses on the social context of teaching and learning in a variety of education contexts.
