Pedagogy and Diversity: Enrichment and Support for Social Work Instructors Engaged in Social Justice Education
Garran, Ann Marie; Kang, Hye-Kyung; Fraser, Edith
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v34 n5 p564-574 2014
The primary purpose of faculty development is to create and sustain a culture of teaching excellence. For social work faculty, an important part of teaching excellence involves incorporating core social work values such as social justice and diversity across the curriculum and developing pedagogical skills and strategies to teach these issues effectively. In this article, we present a model of a faculty development seminar that offers a facilitated space for instructors to discuss how issues of diversity, social identity, and oppression influence their teaching, the classroom environment, student interactions, and the overall campus climate.
