Description

Several years ago, the University of Michigan’s Center for Research on Learning and Teaching transitioned from inclusion-focused to equity-focused teaching. That transition reflects an increasingly popular politics of pedagogy. What do such shifts make available to teachers, at UM and beyond, in classrooms and other publicly engaged spaces? What, too, do equity-focused shifts ask of us as scholars, teachers, and members of other publics? In this course, we’ll explore topics that may include land acknowledgments; UM’s new SPG about Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility; Florida’s HB 1557 and HB 7 legislation from 2022; and student-, faculty-, staff-, and/or public-facing University materials on a topic that we’ll select early in the semester. As we engage, we’ll take some field trips on campus to places such as UMMA, we’ll meet with other UM practitioners, and we’ll read some essays on pedagogies. Your final project will include an annotated suite of course materials for a course you’d like to teach or a similar pedagogies project that reflects what you’ve learned in our course.
