In order to prepare for tomorrow's college students, future faculty members must be equipped and aware of the complexities of these students. This session introduces the experiences of Kearns-CIRTL Graduate Fellows in teaching science and math effectively in classrooms with a widely diverse student population.

Faculty and graduate students in science and math will describe how their experiences in the classroom and lab during the summer developed their knowledge of and ability to incorporate different teaching and learning styles in their teaching, and they will present techniques for dealing with a wide variety of diversities in the classroom (including ethnicity, language, age, educational background, relative numeracy and literacy, and other cultural markers that shape the way individuals process learning).

*CIRTL Cast Series: April: Creating an Inclusive STEM Teaching Environment*
Through a unique partnership with pre-college students in the University's Upward Bound Programs, Kearns-CIRTL Graduate Fellows are provided opportunities to teach and learn from diverse students while in turn providing expanded exposure to STEM to these traditionally scientifically underserved students. This series examines this partnership and its impact on learning through diversity, through the lens of classroom teaching. This series will explore the Kearns-CIRTL Graduate Fellows' implementation of diverse teaching strategies for first generation college, low-income and/or minority students. Fellows worked with Kearns Center staff and STEM faculty to design appropriate curricula and assist in STEM content development and delivery effectively in classrooms with a widely diverse student population. Fellows will review their experiences on this project working with both pre-college and college populations, providing important insight on the trajectories of student learning and their development from high school to college level learners. Additionally, this series will outline ways future and current faculty members can leverage these authentic teaching practices for broadening participation in STEM when seeking funding opportunities, especially through the NSF. This series is organized by University of Rochester and CIRTL.
