Join this workshop to find out what decolonizing the curriculum means and why it’s important.
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
I’ve heard this phrase ‘decolonising the curriculum’, but what does it mean and why is it important?
I’d like to understand a bit more about the challenges our black students face in their studies and to pick up some initial ideas as to changes we could make to our modules.
Through this you will...
- Consider the meaning of the phrase ‘decolonising the curriculum’, why it is important and what challenges are involved.
- Discuss with others a selection of actions that we can take to start to ‘decolonise’ the modules and courses we teach.
- Identify one action that you yourself can take to make changes to your own module(s) and start to plan the steps involved.
