Interested in bringing social issues into your course(s) but not sure how or where to start? Already teaching about social justice but looking for ideas or support? Come hear Berkeley faculty from a variety of disciplines talk about instructional strategies and assignments they’ve developed to help students understand and confront contemporary concerns, and share their experiences tackling thorny topics.

Questions we will explore: What does social justice pedagogy mean? How does one design for social justice? What does this look like across different disciplines?

Join in the discussion with your own challenges, successes, questions, insights, and helpful tips. Light refreshments will be provided. Note: Registration is not required, but it helps us know how many people to expect.
