Have you ever wondered what equity looks like in your classroom? Wish you had colleagues to collaborate with in developing, implementing, and assessing equitable teaching? Join this online Madison Fellowship to develop equity- based teaching practices in the classroom and learn how to develop a scholarly community within your unit. The facilitator will share their experience developing a professional learning community and related scholarly projects.  Fellows will then work towards developing, implementing, assessing, and publishing about equitable teaching practices in their courses. They will also explore the development of a professional learning community to share their work and continue developing equity-based teaching practices and scholarship in collaboration with colleagues.


  • Tim Ball, Ph.D., School of Communication Studies
  • Zareen Rahman, Ph.D., Middle, Secondary, and Mathematics Education  

Dr. Rahman’s research interests are focused on mathematics education reform. Her scholarship and professional development work focuses on mathematics teaching and learning, teacher education and culturally responsive mathematics instruction. Her work actively investigates how prospective and in-service mathematics teachers learn to improve their teaching practice and the challenges they face in this process of change. She is specifically interested in the role that teachers play as mediators between instructional resources and their students. She is committed to preparing middle and secondary mathematics teachers who teach to develop responsible citizens, capable of using mathematics to change the world. 

Faculty participants will make progress toward these program outcomes

  • Developing equitable teaching practices to be implemented within their own courses.  
  • Creating a professional learning community focused on equitable teaching practices.  
  • Publishing research projects assessing equitable teaching practices individually and within their professional learning communities.

We want this program to be welcoming, accessible, and inclusive for all of our participants. Please describe any considerations (e.g., disability, wellness, cultural, etc.) you want us to know about in the registration survey. You may also reach out to us or (540) 568-4846.
