with Raychelle Burks (CAS-Chemistry, TaLisa Carter (SPA-Justice, Law & Criminology), Amaarah DeCuir (School of Education), Krisztina Domjan (School of Professional and Extended Studies), Brian McGowan (Center for Teaching, Research & Learning / School of Education), Salvador Vidal-Ortiz (CAS-Sociology), and Shari Watkins (Center for Teaching, Research, & Learning) 

Now more than ever it is imperative for faculty to engage in critical conversations that will lead to equitable, inclusive or expansive, antiracist actionable outcomes in our research, teaching, and service. This workshop will offer participants an opportunity to learn more about CTRL’s Inclusive Pedagogy (IP) Faculty Fellows Program and gather insights into the ways that the current IP fellows foreground equity, inclusion, and antiracism in their work. In this session, attendees will have space to reflect on their teaching praxis while strengthening their commitments to student success and belonging.

Antiracist Curriculum Development: Lessons from the School of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences

Time: 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Watch this previously recorded session.

With Meg Bentley (CAS-Biology), Max Paul Friedman (CAS Interim Dean), Núria Vilanova (CAS Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies), Rachel Watkins (CAS-Anthropology), Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy (SOE Dean), Corbin Campbell (SOE Associate Dean of Academic Affairs) and Reuben Jacobson (Director of Education Policy and Leadership Program, SOE)

Faculty and deans from CAS and SOE describe their experiences with fostering antiracist pedagogy and course content. While antiracist curriculum development serves the goals of advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), it goes beyond a diversity paradigm to challenge structures of systemic racism, antiblackness, and white supremacy in society and in our academic disciplines. Antiracist curriculum and pedagogy also affirm the lived experiences and cultures of Black and Brown students and elevate voices of BIPOC scholarship.  We will discuss useful concepts and approaches, how antiracist teaching and curriculum development work in different disciplines, and forms of support for faculty engaging in this practice. We will also address the inherent challenges and tensions that may arise doing this work and ways to work through them.
