Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher. ~ Parker Palmer

All aspects of the self are salient in the classroom, and Parker Palmer underscores the primacy of the teacher’s own identity. Research shows that various aspects of identity, such as gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, affect how teaching and learning happen in multiple, complex ways. When does identity enhance or undermine the presumed expertise or authority of the teacher? Moreover, how do dynamics of identity influence the classroom experience 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.
