Abstract: We describe a process of designing for equity-oriented learning outcomes in an undergraduate computational biology course. Our focus is designing for critical navigation of disciplinary values. We build on prior work that has articulated how mismatches between students’ identities and disciplinary values create barriers to full participation. We describe how in our work our orientation towards equity evolved to include how navigating disciplinary values could not only support students in envisioning themselves as part of the discipline but could also function to allow students to consider the processes through which disciplinary values change, including the possibility of their own participation in resisting established disciplinary ideas and norms. We use conjecture mapping to trace the emergence of a conjecture related to critical disciplinary navigation and analyze students’ responses for evidence of how they identified and navigated disciplinary values in one focal assignment.
