Preparing teachers for the classrooms of the future through research and design.

Equity Workshop

600 Technology Square, Building NE49, Cambridge, MA 02139Cafeteria

About the Workshop

Across the country, schools see persistent gaps in achievement and outcomes between different groups of students. The way schools approach issues of race, culture, gender, and ability all contribute to the success of our students. How can educators develop the tools, practice and confidence they need to address inequity in their own contexts?

In this one-day, in-person workshop, MIT Assistant Professor Justin Reich and the MIT Teaching Systems Lab (TSL) team will be sharing new material designed to help educators bring more equitable teaching practices back to their classrooms and schools. Participants will receive a stipend for their participation and feedback, which will help shape a suite of learning experiences in development at TSL.

Drawing on the Teaching Systems Lab’s research and development of simulations, attendees will consider key frameworks, practice new approaches to challenging classroom moments, and reflect on their own practice. Participants will leave with a set of resources for sharing and leading equity-focused learning experiences with colleagues in their schools.

What Will I Learn?

  • Key frameworks to promote equity and belonging in today’s classrooms
  • Strategies for responding to in-the-moment issues of bias
  • Tools to help share & lead equity learning in your context
  • Key reflective lenses to build a lifelong practice of equitable teaching
