Classroom techniques to improve equity

Students in class

UW researchers found classroom dynamics can foster gender bias and an achievement gap that may influence a student’s persistence in a discipline, but simple classroom techniques can improve equity.

The story is part of the Innovators Among Us series, produced by the Office of the Provost, UW-IT, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and UW Libraries.
