Anti-Racist Pedagogy Resources

Resource: Anti-Racist Pedagogy in Action: First StepsClassrooms serve as microcosms of the larger society, and the resources offered here, while focused on pedagogical practices, support broader commitments to anti-racist actions in higher education. This resource centers on citing the experts in this field, synthesizing their work to encourage further research and, most importantly, amplifying the voices of those who have been doing this work for decades. 

Reading Group: Anti-Racist Pedagogy Theory and Practice; March 25 and April 22; 3-4:15pm

Accessibility and Inclusive Teaching Resources

Accessibility in Teaching and LearningThis resource provides instructors with an overview of accessibility in teaching and learning and general “getting started” strategies for making learning resources, tools, experiences, and opportunities accessible to all learners. Creating an accessible learning environment for your students is part of an inclusive practice.

Inclusive Teaching and Learning OnlineWith the shift to online learning, instructors can draw on principles of inclusive teaching to help students feel a sense of belonging, ensure they can access course materials, and support them in achieving learning goals. This resource provides strategies for inclusive teaching online and is structured around the five principles of inclusive teaching as outlined in the Guide for Inclusive Teaching at Columbia.
