About the Workshop

 

Outcomes for students in the STEM education pipeline continue are a national concern. Students who learn STEM in urban contexts experience unique challenges that make their trajectory through the STEM pipeline particularly precarious. In this workshop, the faculty provide an exploration of the landscape of urban STEM education and issues that emerge in urban STEM education contexts. Further, the faculty will explore answers to the questions: what is urban STEM education, and what are some of the unique challenges and opportunities available for students who learn STEM in urban contexts? The faculty will also delve into some of the theoretical and methodological perspectives that can inform urban STEM education research with a focus on the types of research questions, data, and methods that can be used to understand issues that arise for students who learn STEM in urban schools. The workshop will end with a discussion of some quantitative and qualitative methods that are used to investigate research questions that are unique to urban STEM education and how these methods can be used to extend our understanding of urban STEM education both locally and nationally. This interactive workshop will allow participants to deepen their understanding of urban STEM education and some cutting-edge approaches to understanding issues unique to the teaching and learning of STEM in urban contexts.

The workshop will broadcast live on Zoom.

ASL interpretation and captioning will be provided.

About the 2021 AERA Distinguished Lecture
Racial/ethnic identity groups have endured racial profiling, are targets of hate crimes, and are often viewed not as individuals but as a faceless mass on a daily basis—even in classrooms. Dr. Hurtado personalizes “facelessness” using research on campus racial climates and Latinx experiences, articulating how our tendencies for recognition bias are perpetuated and reinforced at the individual and institutional levels in education. She articulates the need for identity-based education, re-humanizing practices, and increased specificity to target racial equity aims in higher education. Learn more here.
