**ONLINE** Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning
Location: Online from WCET
Presented by Erin Bentrim,Senior Education & Training Specialist with Anthology, Inc. and Norma Hollebeke, Senior Manager of Network Programs and Services with Every Learner Everywhere
Culturally responsive teaching in higher education, according to Every Learner Everywhere in the 2020 blog post, “Curricula that Account for All Students: A Look at Culturally Responsive Teaching in Higher Ed,” attempts to confront and remove equity gaps by viewing students’ cultural knowledge as an asset and then scaffolding that knowledge to the concepts being taught. Culturally responsive teaching values students’ diverse experiences and backgrounds. Faculty can build a curriculum that resonates with their class on a deeper level by drawing from their students’ languages, cultures, and life experiences using a research-based approach and data-informed insights (WGU). Panelists will discuss strategies for implementing culturally responsive teaching and learning, as well as digital learning considerations, during this webcast, including frameworks for culturally responsive pedagogy, why culturally responsive teaching is a journey rather than a destination, how it cultivates a sense of belonging for students, and ways that technology can foster collaboration and promote cross-cultural empathy.
