Teaching Equity-minded Active Mathematics: A model for Instructional Change (Amelia Stone-Johnstone, CSU Fullerton)

March 6 @ 4:15 pm - 5:30 pm

Title: Teaching Equity-minded Active Mathematics: A model for Instructional Change

Speaker: ‚ÄčAmelia Stone-Johnstone, Department of Mathematics, California State University, Fullerton

Abstract: Active learning has been championed as a mechanism for greater student learning and participation in STEM. However, recent studies have demonstrated how active learning without an explicit equity focus may harm students from historically marginalized communities in STEM. In this talk, I will introduce a model for professional development that attends both to equity and active learning. In addition, I will introduce the Teaching Equity-minded and Active Mathematics (TEAM) Tool, a tool for pedagogical reflection that was developed by a team of undergraduate students at California State University, Fullerton. This research-backed tool was constructed as a way to support faculty in creating a learning atmosphere in which students can explore, discuss, and learn mathematics in the classroom in a safe, just, active, and equitable manner.


Amelia Stone-Johnstone is an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at California State University, Fullerton. Her research involves the development and assessment of academic support systems in introductory mathematics courses. In addition, Dr. Stone-Johnstone’s research and service include faculty professional development on equity-minded instruction.
