Event Details

Dr. Ron Eglash, will speak on alternative pedagogical tools for the study of science. Dr. Eglas (Ph.D History of Consciousness, UCSC) works at the intersection of culture, technology, and science, researching tools that tap into culture to teach math and science as well as the appropriation of science and technology by under-served groups. Eglas was the recipient of the American Anthropological Association's "Exemplary Cross-Field Scholarship" award (2009). He was also a TED Talk speaker, presenting a talk titled "The Fractals at the heart of African Design". His talk at the GDL will focus on his work on ethnomathematics and social justice.
