From Individual to Programmatic Educational Equity: A Blueprint for Inclusive Teaching Practices, Dismantling Deficit Thinking, and Shifting Broader Library Culture

Deficit thinking often unintentionally shapes our approaches to students, especially those with marginalized identities. Conversely, educational equity embraces student diversity as an asset and provides inclusive learning experiences that offer structure and flexibility to help students succeed. Librarians created programmatic opportunities for library instructors to retool semester-long educational equity strategies and build inclusive teaching practices into library learning spaces. This presentation will share insights from these efforts as well as practices and strategies participants can bring to their teaching programs. By scaffolding individual practices to shift departmental approaches we can ultimately build a more equitable culture of teaching in libraries.

Participants will:
  • Articulate how deficit thinking negatively influences student learning and ways equitable teaching practices can counter this mindset.
  • Adapt semester-long inclusive teaching practices to library learning environments.
  • Develop a teaching strategy that fosters educational equity to incorporate into their individual or programmatic practice.
