How to be an Ally: From Awareness to Action

May 15 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
CNSI Auditorium, UCLA

Our diverse society offers many opportunities to learn about the triumphs, struggles, and experiences of a variety of groups. With this increased knowledge also comes awareness of grave social injustice and inequity that persists in how members of different groups are treated across all spheres of our society. What are the ways to translate our awareness and desire to effect change into action that uplifts, and does not overshadow or stifle, the work of marginalized communities? This talk will discuss ways to engage in meaningful allyship, what research tells us about being an ally, and the challenges that might arise along the way.

The Race Between Education and Catastrophe, by Jeff Bennett

May 15 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
UCLA Physics and Astronomy Building 4-330, 475 Portola Plaza
Los Angeles, CA 90024 United States

In 1920, H.G. Wells wrote: "Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe." Perhaps no other quote better sums up why teaching is so important, and why so many of us focus our lives on promoting education. In this talk, I’ll discuss a few strategies, with examples, that I believe can help us "win" this race by improving our teaching success at almost any level, and especially for the teaching of math and science.
