Antiracist Pedagogy:

From Faculty to Design and Assessment

April 21, 2021

11am - 12pm (noon) ET

via Zoom

 

“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)  

 

Covid-19 and racial unrest have further exposed the US racist past and the enduring nature of systemic racism. From the perspective of both an assessment professional and a faculty member, we explore the use of reflection to create more equitable course design that includes curriculum content, delivery, and assessment. Come and join our “think aloud” and interactive discussion:  

 

Session Outcomes: 

  • Connect “culturally responsive pedagogy” with “antiracist pedagogy” (how we define these terms, and how we build from these understandings to design curriculum and assessment)
  • Examine the considerations that influence curriculum design and assessment from an anti-racist perspective
  • Unpack the elements of a draft model of equitable curriculum design and assessment strategies 
  • Consider the questions that would shape your own model for designing a course or curriculum based on principles of diversity, equity, and access
