Participants will also learn pro-active strategies to integrate inclusive practices into teaching practice.
- Deepening Your Practice in Antiracist Pedagogy: Transforming learning environments through Intentional Course Design, Thursday, Dec. 8, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. This workshop will examine anti-racist and decolonial approaches to course design and multifaceted factors to be taken into consideration in course and syllabus development across disciplines. It will also explore the interconnectedness between one’s anti-racist lens, inclusive teaching practice, and course design.
