Event Date

The Grove, Rm 1360

In this faculty workshop, Dr. Kem Saichaie (CEE) and Dr. Cecilia Gomez (CEE) will guide participants through the five practical components of Kishimoto’s (2018) anti-racist teaching practices: (1) addressing assumptions to cultivate students’ critical analytical skills; (2) generating awareness of students’ social positions; (3) empowering students to take responsibility for their learning through the decentering of the classroom; (4) empowering students to apply theory to practice; and (5) fostering a sense of community in the classroom through collaborative learning. Interdisciplinary examples of these practices will be shared as participants develop actionable plans for their classrooms. Participants will also discuss how anti-racist pedagogies extend to other spheres of influence.
