Social justice and equity are a prominent dimensions of sustainability that can be overlooked or under-taught across the curriculum. Well-meaning instructors may focus on “celebrating diversity” or exceptional individuals rather than a critical examination of social structures. This webinar will show ways to move towards a social justice perspective in teaching. Topics will include critical inquiry, culturally responsive teaching, and ways to introduce institutional discrimination and social change. Participants will receive sample rubrics to assess and strengthen their courses.
This webinar is presented with the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
