Improving Racial Climate at UMD: Building Anti-Racist Classrooms & Pedagogy

Ticketed Event: 

This session will explore how instructors can intentionally strengthen their anti-racist pedagogy and practice. In addition to tools for self-assessment, this workshop will center instructors' ability to assess and strengthen their courses to further equity and justice in the classroom and beyond. Part of being/becoming an anti-racist educator is a commitment to constantly grow, change, learn, and re-imagine our teaching and mentoring. This session offers a space to begin or continue that work. Appropriate for instructors across all disciplines, this session will offer instructors an opportunity to examine (one or more) aspects of their anti-racist practice including their classroom climate, their classroom behavior, their class discussions, their content, and/or their assumptions about what classrooms can be and/or should be. Refreshments will be provided.
