Inclusive Teaching and Learning Series: Jennifer Bryan, Ph.D. ‘83 Identity and Authority in an Inclusive Classroom

  • Carl A. Fields Center, Multipurpose Room 58 Prospect Avenue Princeton, NJ, 08540 United States

The classroom in a space in which all our identities become salient; research shows that gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, among other aspects of identity, affect how teaching and learning happen in multiple and complex ways. So how is authority constructed by teachers when identities might pose challenges to their presumed expertise or authority? Moreover, how do the dynamics of identity impact the classroom for students and teachers alike? Join us for an interactive conversation with Jennifer Bryan, Ph.D. ’83, as we consider pedagogically effective ways to create inclusive classrooms in light of these challenges.
