2021 Inclusive Curriculum in Physics - Workshop Series

The National Society of Black Physicists, the National Society of Hispanic Physicists, and the American Association of Physics Teachers present a three part workshops series bringing together experts in equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) and physics educators to focus on inclusivity in physics curriculum, instruction and grant-funded education projects.

* This workshop series is made possible through a grant from the American Institute of Physics Diversity Action Fund

Workshop 1 - Diverse perspectives and bold visions for the Inclusive Classroom

Workshop 1 is open to students and physics educators at all levels.

In addition to fantastic speakers and panelists, workshop 1 will have opportunities for us to discuss, share, and envision.

Those who attend workshop 1 and are interested in continuing on with the workshop series will be invited to apply for workshops 2 and 3. In workshops 2 and 3, working groups will engage with experts in EDI and will take a critical look at instructional materials in physics through a EDI lens, working toward making these materials more inclusive.
