PCMI 2021 Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics

July 12-23, 2021 - Virtual Workshop

2021 Organizer: Rochelle Gutiérrez, University of Illinois College of Education

Participants will further develop their understanding of 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 the rehumanizing mathematics framework, reflect on (and map) 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 create or alter in some way; a new initiative to launch in your laboratory or workspace; 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. You will also be invited back to Park City Mathematics Institute in the summer of 2022 for a few days to update/extend your action plan and network with others.

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

The 2021 Workshop on Rehumanizing Mathematics is fully subscribed by the applicants that were accepted to the 2020 program which was postponed due to Covid-19 and applications for summer 2021 are not available.

Applications for PCMI 2022 will be available November 1, 2021, please stay tuned.
