- Abstract: We will be discussing this paper by Appleby et al, Disciplinary significance of social caring in postsecondary science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This is a longer article, so we are asking people to focus on these sections: Abstract, Introduction, III. A Case of University Students doing Physics (sections A, B and D), IV. Our Conjecture: Social Caring Supports a Shifted Epistemology (Section A), and Discussion and Implications.
GREAT IDEAS stands for Group for Reading, Educating, And Talking about Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Advocacy in Science. It is a multimedia reading group dedicated to amplifying the experiences of underrepresented groups in science and academia in order to become better advocates for our peers. GREAT IDEAS is open to everyone (students/ faculty/ staff/ etc), and all are welcome and encouraged to engage with the material and contribute to the discussions. To keep a welcoming and safe environment for everyone, we ask that everyone understand and adhere to our community guidelines for the discussions. If you would like to submit an article for a future GREAT IDEAS discussion, you can do so on this form.
