Supporting Faculty in Exploring Disciplinary Legacies of Racism and Colonization

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The curriculum is a primary site where institutions of higher education reproduce ideas that lead to the systemic oppression of marginalized communities (e.g., Swanner 2013, Grenier 2020). As such, it is imperative that educational developers support faculty in grappling with these questions, even though it may be difficult and emotionally painful to reflect upon them. In this interactive roundtable, participants will discuss strategies and approaches for encouraging faculty to reflect upon their disciplinary legacies of racism and colonization. By the end of the workshop, we hope to identify next steps for continuing these conversations at our own institutions.

Note from the Conference Team: Engage With Small(er) Groups in Roundtable Sessions 
  • Roundtable Discussions are intended to provide an opportunity for interactions in a smaller group setting. To accomplish the goal of more focused and personal conversations, we recommend presenters limit attendance for roundtable discussions to 30 participants. 
  • If you are unable to join a roundtable because it has reached the maximum number of participants, we encourage you to check-out one or more of the on-demand sessions (available throughout the conference) or a Q&A session scheduled for the same time from Wednesday to Friday.
