Becoming a More Equitable Educator: Mindsets and Practices

This is a free, self-paced online course taught by professor Justin Reich of MIT and professor Rich Milner of Vanderbilt University. 

As Black Lives Matter and the movement for racial justice has galvanized schools and society, equity work in education has become more visible and important than ever. This course offers guidance from experts alongside a deep look at real schools in the midst of doing this vital work. 

In this course, you will explore mindsets and practices that help all students, especially underserved students, to thrive and feel valued. By the end, you will gain a better understanding of yourself and your students, new resources and exercises to draw on in your local context, and a plan for your school community to advance the lifelong work of anti-racist, equitable teaching.

The course opens on January 15, 2021, and you can complete the course at your own pace anytime before August 26, 2021.
