Engineering Inclusive Teaching Series

Small changes in classroom teaching can have a big impact on undergraduate engineering education and professional persistence and success, especially for women.   

An engineer and a social scientist show how educators can foster professional persistence in their students.

In this interactive webinar you'll learn: 

  • The importance of having students create a personal vision that includes professional engagement.
  • How personal vision specifically helps women overcome bias, barriers, and discrimination.
  • How to incorporate student development of personal vision into your engineering curriculum.  

This well-integrated approach helps educators recognize and address the complex role diversity plays in learning environments. You will never think of equity in education in quite the same way.

This webinar is publicly accessible and relevant to all interested educators.  Examples will be engineering specific.
