WORKSHOP: Creating SEISMIC Change: Lessons From our First Five Years



Presenters: The Collaboration Council (CoCo) – Lalo Gonzalez, Emily Bonem, Madeleine Gonin, Sabrina Solanki, Sarah Castle, Ashley Atkinson

Panelists: Tim McKay, Chantal Levesque-Bristol, Lalo Gonzalez, Becky Matz, Chandralekha Singh

Description: When SEISMIC launched late in 2018, our collective goal was to set a new national standard for foundational STEM courses that are inclusive introductions to STEM disciplines and that embody equitable classroom practices. Since then, each of our campuses has used participation in SEISMIC as a tool for advancing our practice both together and on our own. This panel will bring together some long-standing SEISMIC members to reflect on building a national collaboration, transforming our understanding of equity and inclusion, navigating a global pandemic, driving change on each campus, and imagining the future.
