Engineering for Change: Virtual Reality and Racial Equity in STEM Education

Brooke Coley
October 14, 2020 - 4:00pm to 5:20pm
ONLINE-ONLY EVENT LIMITED TO STANFORD STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND STAFF. ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED WITH A STANFORD EMAIL ADDRESS.

Professor Coley is a bioengineer and social justice scholar. In her work, she hopes to push the bounds of traditionally heteronormative engineering environments through transdisciplinary approaches. Intrigued by the intersections of engineering education, mental health, and social justice, Coley's primary research interest focuses on virtual reality as a tool for developing empathetic and inclusive mindsets. She is also interested in the lived experience of hidden populations in engineering education and innovations for more inclusive pedagogies.
