PCMI 2022 Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics

July 17-30, 2022 - Park City, Utah

2022 Organizer: Rochelle Gutiérrez, University of Illinois College of Education

Participants will further develop their understanding of equity (identity & power issues) in mathematics and consider how to expand our goals to rehumanize mathematical experiences for those with whom we engage.  In this workshop, we will explore different perspectives/theories, reflect on our own practices, learn from experts in the field who have been altering their practices, and create our own action plans for work we intend to carry out after the workshop ends.

Ideal participants will include mathematicians, mathematics teachers, and mathematics education professors who have a specific project upon which they would like to focus.  For example, you may have in mind a course you would like to alter in some way; a new initiative to launch; a summer camp or bridge program; a professional development or teaching activity to update; or simply a new way to think of assessments or evaluations.  By the end of the session, you will leave with a more developed action plan and feedback from others so you can put your best foot forward in your future work. 

Participants who are invited to participate in the Workshop receive the following support from PCMI: travel allowance up to $600 for travel scheduled through the PCMI travel agent; private lodging for the duration of the workshop; informal breakfast and lunch on weekdays, the opening reception on July 18 and casual suppers TBD; a $500 stipend for full participation in the Workshop.

This workshop is funded through an award from the National Science Foundation.
