Innovation Award Finalist

To dismantle systemic inequality in STEM classes and minimize racial grade gaps, we modified and repurposed a previously validated rubric that measures the degree of syllabi learner-centeredness. We conducted research connecting syllabus learner-centeredness and grade gaps and found courses with more learner-centered syllabi had smaller gaps. Connecting research to practice, we now offer an “Inclusive Syllabus Design” workshop series, training instructors to use our innovative rubric to make small changes with big classroom impacts.
