From Wynne: 

"These works on epistemology will also be useful for helping faculty who are revising courses and developing new courses for equity and global identities attributes of the new Core. I think some chapters may be particularly useful for stem and health sciences faculty whose programs have little room for extra courses. The best route for those faculty may be to re-think the epistemic grounding of their courses, what counts as credible knowledge, what groups benefit from that and what groups are left out. In the Routledge Handbook of Social Epistemology, chapters 5 and 6 in Part I Historical Backgrounds, and chapters 21-25 on Science and Social Epistemology, may be most useful.  In The epistemic life of groups : essays in the epistemology of collectives, STEM faculty might look at chapters in Part IV Philosophy of Science."
