C.R.A.S.H. is a faculty development program that lasts over the course of one school year. The program begins with a 3-day workshop aimed at teaching faculty culturally relevant pedagogy. At the end of the 3-day workshop faculty choose an inquiry project to run in one of their courses that involves making a specific pedagogical change and collecting data on that pedagogical change. Over the fall semester the faculty teach the course with the pedagogical change and collect data on the effectiveness of the change. In the spring semester they analyze and interpret their data and then present their project to an audience of their peers.
One goal of this program is to increase the use of culturally relevant and inclusive teaching practices so that students feel a greater sense of community and belonging as well as reach higher learning gains in their courses. A secondary goal of this program is to increase the use of systematic inquiry of pedagogical techniques in courses across campus. By increasing the use of systematic inquiry faculty will gain more insight into their own teaching practices and their students learning so that they are able to better serve the population of students that they have.
