Decolonizing Curriculum: Inner Work, Outer Work with Alma Partners

  • All Faculty & Staff

Workshop description:

In this workshop, we will explore how to decolonize curriculum. Starting with self-reflection, we will look at diverse ways of knowing and the role of power in the classroom, our schools, and society. The second half of the workshop will be a hands-on process of working with your own curriculum using the Alma Partners Decolonizing Curriculum Checklist and Curriculum Map. Please bring paper and a pencil (coloured pencils encouraged) to this workshop.

We teach who we are.” ~Parker Palmer

Beloved community is formed not by the eradication of difference but by its affirmation, by each of us claiming the identities and cultural legacies that shape who we are and how we live in the
world.” ~bell hooks
