FULL ABSTRACT:

This panel will feature instructors who have developed a variety of strategies for infusing feminist pedagogies into their courses and their classrooms sharing techniques. The facilitators for this panel all come from different disciplines both in the humanities and the social sciences. According to Sharp, Weiser, Lavigne, and Corby (2017), interdisciplinary collaborations are a strength for students when discussing facultyââ¬â¢s roles as activists in their classrooms. Their research illustrates the need for all disciplines to be incorporating feminist classroom model into their classrooms, regardless the content. Beyond creating an inclusive classroom climate, this panel provides ideas for infusing feminist pedagogies into the syllabus, readings, course assignments, classroom formats and instructional techniques including flipped classrooms, re-imagining experts, and jigsaw strategies.à Instructors will also discuss strategies for engaging in on-going reflective tools to enhance teaching effectiveness.
