Culturally Relevant Pedagogy

October 29, 2013

Attracting diverse populations of students, and appreciating the value that diversity brings to engineering colleges and to employers is important. To develop the talent of aspiring, diverse students, it is critical to reflect on the pedagogies used in engineering classrooms and how those practices meet learning needs of diverse students.

CRP empowers students intellectually, socially and emotionally by using cultural referents to impart knowledge, skills and attitudes.

Our presenters will introduce CRP as a pedagogical tool for use in the college setting to better reach and teach traditionally under-represented minority STEM college students. CRP will be particularly interesting to engineering colleges committed to the success of their diverse student populations. Target audiences include:

  • Faculty members
  • Curriculum committee members
  • College administrators
  • College diversity, retention, or student success staff members

Dr. Pringle explores effective science instruction, culturally relevant pedagogy, and pedagogical content knowledge as frameworks for equitable inquiry-based science experiences for all learners. Of particular interest is Dr. Pringle's quest to increase the STEM participation of underrepresented  minorities, especially girls of African descent.  Dr. Pringle is currently funded to examine how teachers adjust their pedagogy to accommodate the range of diverse learners in their classrooms.
