Abstract Detail

Enhancing Scientist Diversity in Plant Biology Luncheon - Bryan Dewsbury

Dewsbury, Bryan [1].

Pedagogy for a life of meaning and purpose.

Narratives concerning the need for inclusive practices typically center on righting statistical wrongs. Inequitable academic outcomes between dominant culture students and the historically minoritized have somewhat rightly fueled transformation efforts in higher education. I argue here that truly inclusive pedagogy transcends deficit alleviation, and re-engages the Freirean concept of teaching for purposeful living. We will discuss why this revisit is necessary in our current sociopolitcal contexts, and address specific strategies for self-transformation, and the transformation of our praxis.
