Creating an Asset-based Syllabus

Dr. Francesca Lopez, Professor and Waterbury Chair in Equity Pedagogy, Penn State University, College of Education, Department of Curriculum and Instruction
In this workshop, participants will critically examine the ways classroom artifacts (i.e., the syllabus and readings) can reflect deficit orientations and explore ways to create a more inclusive, asset-based approach to courses across the disciplines. Participants will be asked to bring a course syllabus to the workshop, and will engage in thought exchanges to promote understanding and practices that create asset-based classroom spaces. López’s research focuses on the ways educational settings promote achievement for marginalized youth and has been funded by the American Educational Research Association Grants Program, the Division 15 American Psychological Association Early Career Award, the National Academy of Education/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship, the Institute of Education Sciences, and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Prior to joining Penn State in July 2020, she served as the Ernest W. McFarland distinguished professor in leadership for education policy and reform; founder and director of the Education Policy Center; and associate dean of the College of Education at the University of Arizona. She is a co-editor of the National Education Policy Center publications and former co-editor of the American Educational Research Journal. This event is a workshop.
