About this Abstract
Meeting MS&T22: Materials Science & Technology
Symposium Curricular Innovations and Continuous Improvement of Academic Programs (and Satisfying ABET along the Way): The Elizabeth Judson Memorial Symposium
Presentation Title Inclusive Pedagogy in Introductory Materials Science Courses
Author(s) Vincent M. Sokalski
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Vincent M. Sokalski
Abstract Scope This presentation will highlight strategies implemented in the introductory course 27-100 – “Engineering the materials of the future” at Carnegie Mellon University during Spring 2020-21-22 semesters. Universal strategies discussed will include mitigating stereotype threat, normalizing adversity, promoting a growth mindset, and highlighting diverse figures with specific examples provided. These strategies are broadly responsive to pending changes to ABET evaluation criteria including that faculty must “demonstrate awareness and abilities appropriate to providing an equitable and inclusive environment for its students.” Interactive strategies specific to the technical content will be presented including the use of demonstrations and digital polling during lecture. Pre and post survey responses from students will be discussed with examples of how student feedback was introduced into the lecture content with an eye towards creating a more culturally responsive curriculum.
