Daring To Discuss The N-Word
Instructor: Guracha Clem Marshall
Workshop to be delivered online via Microsoft Teams
Jointly sponsored by CTL, OHREA and WUFA. In this workshop, we are expressing our intent and willingness to trust ourselves to speak true, listen generously, and where new insights enter, even transform our views. It is presumed that in order to get there, which in this context refers to feeling better-prepared to respond if the N-word surfaces in the course of our work, we must go through. Here, that means we must take time to unpack some of the histories that give this word its unique power to wound spirits, block understanding or wreck chances for linking across identity while respecting ancestry, for Black populations whose world involves other worlds.
Using Reflection for Learning
Instructors: Jessica Raffoul & Allyson Skene
Delivered Online: Monday, January 25, 2021, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
In this session, we will unpack the expectations and assumptions in reflective writing as a transformative learning experience with a view toward generating approaches and strategies that encourage a more authentic learning experience.
