Anti-racist Pedagogy: Rethinking How One Teaches
Anti-racist pedagogy is not about simply incorporating racial content into courses, curriculum, and/or discipline. It is also about deconstructing how one teaches, and the scholarship used—even in courses where race is not the subject matter. To truly practice anti-racist pedagogy, an internal assessment must be done to examine why and how one structures their classes. This requires an acute awareness of emotional intelligence to push practices forward in one’s department and discipline.
This webinar will begin with an introduction to anti-racist pedagogy with examples on how to incorporate it into the classroom when teaching about children and families. The audience will then examine the dominant discourse of their discipline, challenge neutrality, and receive practical exercises to help work towards an anti-racist pedagogy. Exercises will also be shared to interrogate personal biases and practice managing personal and student biases when discussing racial topics in the classroom, including how to manage student responses to anti-racist practices when incorporated in the classroom.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Define anti-racist pedagogy and its relevance to one’s teaching;
- Challenge one’s personal biases to increase the practice of anti-racist pedagogical skills; and
- Manage personal and student biases when discussing racial topics in the classroom.
Approved for 1 hour of CFLE continuing education credit.
