How much do you know about Piazza, the robust wiki-style Q & A platform that helps boost participation of women and minorities in STEM and other disciplines? If you’re not familiar with it this is a great opportunity to meet representatives who will be on hand for a demo, and hear from a panel of SJSU faculty who use and recommend Piazza. This platform helps boost the participation of women and minorities, in STEM and other disciplines!
Read about how the founder was inspired to create Piazza when she was one of only three women in her computer science program, and “…dreamed of a way to empower all students, shy or outgoing, male or female, to benefit from the power of collaborative learning.” (She was awarded 2016 Women Of Vision ABIE Award Winner for Technical Entrepreneurship.) The platform is certainly not limited to STEM fields. Anytime your students would benefit for collaboration, look to Piazza for features that go far beyond what you can do with Canvas discussion boards. For example, here’s a real psychology course on Piazza.
