Decolonizing Your Syllabus/Curriculum

In this session we discuss what decolonizing or de-canonizing looks like in a classroom and/or department. Using several different online tools, we work through the steps you can take to begin to begin to decolonize your syllabus, curriculum, or field.

Navigating Allyship

In this session we define ally, accomplice, performative allyship, and authentic allyship. We also discuss the differences between being an ally and being an accomplice. We then map out steps to becoming a better ally/accomplice.


Spring 2022

Difficult Conversations in the Classroom

As our campus becomes more demographically diverse, we will be met with more opportunities to work and learn across difference. During socially and politically tumultuous times, conflicts may arise in our classrooms. In this session, we will discuss the nature of conflict and suggest some strategies to more effectively communicate across difference.

Re-defining Community Engagement Through the Lens of Diversity/Equity/Inclusion

In a period of major social, economic, and political disruption, the challenges of community engaged teaching and research can be more acute.  As an institution, we say we value diversity, want to create more equitable opportunities, and believe that inclusion fosters excellence.  But what does that mean in our relationships with community-based organizations?  How can we model those values with students so that community engaged learning is truly transformative for the students and responsive to the societal needs we all face?  This session offers concrete ideas about how to intentionally link community engaged learning and the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion by re-defining community engaged learning and putting into practice specific pedagogical tools.
