The Brass Tactics of Anti-Racist Teaching: What, Why and How

Description

The Brass Tactics of Anti-Racist Teaching delves into the praxis of being an anti-racist in the classroom and beyond. Mr. Byron Adams (Director of Multicultural Retention Programming in the Office of Inclusive Excellence) and Dr. Heidi J Nicholls (Visiting Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology, Global Religions and Cultures) have come together to get down to the brass tactics of anti-racism, the what, why and how. Hear what students are saying and asking for, learn ways to think about your classroom and office space as an anti-racist, and walk away with tangible applications of anti-racist engagement.

The Brass Tactics of Anti-Racist Teaching: What, Why and How is an opportunity to learn about students' thoughts, reflections and concerns since they have returned to UWO, either virtually or in person. Identifying the specific concerns, Mr. Adams and Dr. Nicholls walk you through ways to holistically and intentionally create environments that are more than 'not racist' but anti-racist. Engage in an open and honest dialogue, learn through activities and walk away with items in your ever-growing toolkit to better serve all of those around you inclusively.

This session is a branch off of the CETL summer workshop: Anti-Racist and Inclusive Online Teaching: Re-imagining Teaching during the Racial Justice Uprisings and the Pandemic. This earlier workshop was both a response to the racialized brutalities and uprisings of the summer and a call for what we can do on this campus to be a part of the change we wish to see. While The Brass Tactics of Anti-Racist Teaching is complimentary to the Anti-Racist and Inclusive Online Teaching workshop, it will not be a replica. In turn, we encourage you to watch the video of the workshop from this summer to more fully inform the foundation from which we are building.

It's time for change, let's be a part of making that happen.

Presenters:

  • Byron Adams, Academic Support of Inclusive Excellence
  • Heidi Nicholls, COLS
