Julienne LaChance, a Princeton University graduate student in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering program, will be leading a discussion of “communal goal congruity principle” in engaging diverse students. The group will be reading “Applying the Communal Goal Congruity Perspective to Enhance Diversity and Inclusion in Undergraduate Computing Degrees” from SIGCSE ’16. Additional background on communal goals can be found in this paper.
The TechEd Reading Group discusses pedagogy, curriculum, and diversity and inclusion topics in technical and scientific education, including traditional technical education strategies, integrating policy/ethics into technical curricula, policy issues surrounding technical education, and ethical issues in existing and innovative educational methods.
The reading group is open to grad students, CITP fellows, faculty and undergrads: everyone with an interest in technology education and policy or educational innovation.
The meetings will be held on this Zoom.
