Nicole R. Robinson, Ph. D., Presenter
Thursday, November 10, 2016
Dr. Nicole Robinson from the University of Utah came to Weber State University to present her Diversity and Equity in Education Workshop to WSU faculty, staff, students and teachers from Morgan, Davis, Weber, and Ogden School Districts and Charter Schools. Attendees learned about diversity, privilege, and equity in the lives of students, administrators, families, and schools through playing a game developed by Dr. Robinson.
Participants split into groups and were given a different scenario and socio-economic status. They had to figure out which bills to pay with the salary of the person in their scenario. They then came together to talk about their situation.
Participants would roll the dice and move the amount of spaces rolled. Each space prompted the team to pick up a certain card, which contained a specific development that dealt with the particular socio-economic status.
