This Week for Faculty: Anti-Racist Pedagogy Resource & Workshops

by | Sep 21, 2020

Anti-Racism Pedagogy in Action: First Steps

“The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify it and describe it–and then dismantle it.” –Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist (2019)  

The CTL has produced a new resource to guide the Columbia teaching community into discussions about anti-racist pedagogies and teaching practices. The current moment calls upon those in higher education to interrogate the academy’s role in this inequitable system and to envision and create a more equitable and just future. Part of this interrogation is considering the classroom space and enacted pedagogies.

Classrooms 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

60-minute discussions

Have you enacted anti-racist practices in your teaching? Are you looking for resources and support for engaging in anti-racist pedagogical theory and practice? Join the CTL and peer instructors committed to learning more about and incorporating anti-racist pedagogy and practice. Each month, participants will engage in a discussion around a shared text, as well as use the time and space to reflect on their own practice and classrooms.

Please feel welcome to participate in as many gathering dates as your schedule allows. Register through the links below.
