From Margin to Center: Supporting BIPOC Graduate Students in TLC's

Amid heightened alienation and racial marginalization in the COVID-19 pandemic, teaching and learning centers are poised to offer focused measures for BIPOC graduate students to address departmental inadequacies. Yet attempting to create BIPOC-focused measures leads many educational developers, including this session's presenters, to confront institutional barriers rooted in white supremacy. This session's facilitators will share their experiences with these barriers in order to facilitate inter-institutional inquiry and collaboration. Equipped with intersectional inquiry of educational development, participants will recognize how institutional resistance to BIPOC pedagogies protects a classed and gendered white fragility, and to develop subversive strategies to support BIPOC communities.

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 to you.
