When we teach, we are constantly reacting to how learners are responding to content and its presentation. Teachers trained and conditioned to use traditional modes of pedagogy must consider new realities of a changing classroom with students coming from cultures and backgrounds with ways of being and knowing that may not align with existing norms and values in the academy.

This workshop will be an opportunity for instructors to gain skills and new knowledge to support the learning trajectory of first-generation students, while also being able to articulate the rationale behind their teaching. There is an integral relation between pedagogy/teaching and how students learn. 


  1. Describe and assess research and concepts that delve into the challenges and opportunities faced by first generation students
  2. Develop an asset-based, rather than, deficit-based approach to teaching first-generation students
  3. Describe, adapt, and practice evidence-based approaches and strategies for addressing challenges and supporting successes of first-generation students
