Thanks Chelsea!
Chelsea Cohen
21:49
You’re welcome :)
Maria Guzman
24:27
Welcome, Jennifer!
Jennifer Fowler
24:56
Thank you! Great to “see” everyone. :)
Vanson Nguyen
26:28
Question: the content I'm supposed to teach does not involve racial bias or stereotypes. How do you suggest I teach it if I'm not supposed to teach it?
Chelsea Cohen
26:55
What’s your subject again? Math?
Benjamin Nelson
26:58
Agreed Vanson
Maria Guzman
27:01
I hear that! I have a reply....
Jennifer Fowler
27:11
Seems to be only be white men.
Vanson Nguyen
27:15
All white males working on engineering/architecture project.
Benjamin Nelson
27:21
They're all white cis-males
Chelsea Cohen
27:24
Wearing ties
Benjamin Nelson
27:28
All wearing suits
Jennifer Fowler
27:29
Same age group?
Maria Guzman
27:58
Seems like administrator roles
Benjamin Nelson
28:44
Even the background is white
Vanson Nguyen
28:50
None of them look like me.
Jennifer Fowler
28:53
Lol, Benjamin.
Maria Guzman
28:54
LOL
Chelsea Cohen
28:54
College is meant for young conventionally attractive white people?
Vanson Nguyen
29:15
Then again, I've seen more diverse pictures of colleges and then when you get to campus, it's hella white
Benjamin Nelson
29:25
I don't enjoy school, so it's not fo me
Maria Guzman
29:31
all are standing up and giving me the thumbs up ;/
Jennifer Fowler
29:39
Who uses spiral notebooks anymore? ;)
Benjamin Nelson
29:47
True Vanson
Vanson Nguyen
30:17
They look able-bodied
Chelsea Cohen
30:23
Open pedagogy, right?
Jennifer Fowler
30:24
Good point, Vanson.
Vanson Nguyen
31:00
*cheers*
Vanson Nguyen
32:47
I've had no coursework on bias or anything like it. I feel like at a disadvantage.
Vanson Nguyen
33:38
It's not part of the math curriculum. We don't even talk about how all the mathematicians from a few hundred years ago are euro males.
Chelsea Cohen
33:53
Could you start with an icebreaker around that, Vanson?
Vanson Nguyen
34:13
I suspect back then and even before, mathematicians weren't just euro males
Vanson Nguyen
34:23
I'd love to hear more Chelsea!
Jennifer Fowler
34:25
YES!
Chelsea Cohen
34:26
Setting up that framework and inviting students to share how math has worked from them in their respective cultures or communities
Chelsea Cohen
34:38
or upbringing
Vanson Nguyen
34:44
I think students believe mathematicians are euro males
Benjamin Nelson
34:51
It seems hard to bring up without bringing up threats
Vanson Nguyen
34:54
they've (we've) all be taught to think so
Benjamin Nelson
35:02
Or making students feel that they don't belong
Vanson Nguyen
35:06
Indigenous artists???
Vanson Nguyen
35:08
I like it
Chelsea Cohen
35:51
Ben, that’s a good comment to bring to the group. Let’s discuss later
istark@peralta.edu
36:10
Vanson… do you teach students the REAL history of math?
Chelsea Cohen
36:11
Inger, you sent that comment to Vanson to me privately. Change setting to send it to everyone!
Vanson Nguyen
36:37
I never learned the REAL history of math.
Vanson Nguyen
36:42
Not part of grad school.
Benjamin Nelson
36:57
The history of biology is not a part of my biology courses
Benjamin Nelson
37:03
Sounds fun though
Chelsea Cohen
37:08
That would be such an interesting project to do together with your class, if you could make space for it in your curriculum
Benjamin Nelson
40:11
How can you assess your biases?
istark@peralta.edu
40:16
Exploring the true history of math and science is an amazing project!
Chelsea Cohen
40:24
Harvard’s implicit association tests!
Chelsea Cohen
41:40
Ben, have you heard of Scientific Spotlights? My bio colleagues at Laney have been weaving this in to their curricula I believe
Jennifer Fowler
42:15
When I get defensive about something with my students, I have to stop and check my bias.
Benjamin Nelson
42:17
That's my old professor! Kimberly Tanner helped research and produce those. It's a great resource
Chelsea Cohen
42:42
Amazing!!
Vanson Nguyen
42:52
I have been biased towards richer students who are more likely to be "prepared" for math or who are more likely to be confident in math; these students require less work to teach.
Maria Guzman
43:11
I like all this honesty!!!!
istark@peralta.edu
43:17
Jennifer Eberhard wrote a GREAT book called Biased! Totally worth your time!
Vanson Nguyen
43:40
I have been biased away from poor students who may not have the resources and might not have been so supportive when they couldn't afford to purchase something related to class.
istark@peralta.edu
44:31
Vanson - me too and I’ve harmed students with this bias in the past. :(
Vanson Nguyen
44:38
I also don't want to feel bad that I'm biased against other people. I don't want to be seen as a bad person if I'm biased again people for their race or gender or anything.
Emmanuel Herrera
44:43
Honesty- This chat feels like when students are in the back talking amongst themselves while the instructor is talking.
Vanson Nguyen
45:03
Emmanuel: yup!
Benjamin Nelson
45:05
I'm biased against those students too!
Benjamin Nelson
45:14
But I am one of them?
Vanson Nguyen
45:19
I am.
Chelsea Cohen
48:09
Thank you for your honesty, Emmanuel!
Jennifer Fowler
49:26
I teach public speaking online and students do their speeches on Zoom. I’ve had to let go of the formality of speech presentations having that “formal” feel of standing behind a podium. When students do their speeches on Zoom they’re in all kinds of places. The front seat of their car, their house, in the break room at work, etc.
Chelsea Cohen
49:31
The power of humanizing, Maria!
Chelsea Cohen
50:43
This aligns with E8 of the online equity rubric: connection and belonging. Students can really connect to their instructors when they can see and hear them.
Benjamin Nelson
53:18
Will we have access to this powerpoint?
Maria Guzman
57:22
I like how you are focusing on peer to peer support in the class, Didem!
Chelsea Cohen
59:41
I want to share a wonderful article Michelle just wrote on Humanizing to Equitize Higher Education
Chelsea Cohen
59:45
You can find it here: https://brocansky.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/HumanizingOnlineTeachingToEquitize-PrePrint.pdf

I love this
