Inclusive practices for unrepresented groups in STEM
There is a gap in the current literature regarding best practices for inclusivity and equity practices for the STEM classroom. This symposium will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss research and best practices for the engagement of underrepresented groups. We welcome any research that includes historically underrepresented or underserved groups in STEM, including but not limited to racial and ethnic groups, women, students with disabilities, and the LGBTQ+ community. We are especially interested in studies of specific pedagogies, curriculum materials, community engagement, and activities used to foster an inclusive learning environment. We invite both researchers and practitioners in order to bring both groups together to discuss what research is ongoing, what is happening in and outside the classroom, and how we can make a connection between the two.
