31mar1:00 pm3:00 pmMaking Black Lives Matter in the Classroom:A Critical and Inclusive Pedagogical Perspective

Event Details

Over the past year more than one hundred college campuses across the U.S. have witnessed significant increases in protest and activism regarding the range of experiences and conditions facing racially minoritized students in higher education.  One thing that has become increasingly clear to those who have been paying attention is that at the heart of increased activism on campus and the rally behind #BlackLivesMatter in the streets is in part our failure as faculty to create educational environments both in and out of the classroom where racially minoritized students can engage in learning that suggest their lives (and their lived experiences) really mattered. Accordingly, in this workshop, participants will explore how they can make Black lives matter (and by doing so, make ALL lives matter) in their classrooms through the enactment of critical and inclusive pedagogies.

This workshop is open to faculty, staff and students. 

Faciliated by: Dr. Frank Tuitt
Senior Advisor to the Chancellor and Provost on Diversity and Inclusion
