Desettling STEM Education: Unpacking the Hidden Curriculum

LaToya Strong, Jay Berlin
Friday, 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm -- Maryland 341

We will be unpacking the Eurocentric lens, which dominates the teaching and learning of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines. We will examine how this hidden curriculum impacts our students and our relationship to these disciplines as social justice educators. We will work to deepen our analysis, strengthen our pedagogy and create a more just STEM classroom. We welcome all teaching levels, from pre­kindergarten to higher education, and all disciplines to join us as we explore these issues.
