February 21 (Tues) to February 24 (Fri)
9 AM – 3 PM
This facilitated workshop series provides faculty with the background pedagogy on culturally relevant pedagogy and inclusiveness teaching practices to support all learners.
By the end of this intensive workshop, participants will:
- reflect on the relationship between Uncertainty, Risk, and Fear in teaching (pedagogy/practices) and learning.
- explain the historical development of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (CRP) and Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRsP).
- interrogate the practicalities of the three foundational tenants of CRP/CRsP in classroom practices (academic achievement, cultural competence, socio-political consciousness).
- utilize the language of equity, diversity, positionality, intersectionality, inclusion, decolonization, indigenization, and pedagogy, in their own practice.
- discuss and reflect upon case study/scenarios representative of common course/class challenges related to 1) Physical, Cognitive, and Perceived ability, 2) Gender, Sexuality, and Identity, 3) Race, Culture, and Language, and 4) Colonization, Decolonization, and Indigenization.
- utilize concepts and experiences from this workshop to begin developing a “positionality statement” for their course syllabi, classroom practices, teaching portfolio, etc.
