FLO Friday: Anti-racist Teaching Practices

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the recording and resources below.

Inclusion and a sense of belonging play a vital part in the success of students in higher education. This session will introduce participants to the concept of anti-racism and its application to a teaching and learning environment. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their current practices as well as collaborate with peers to develop practical tips for creating classroom policies and practices that support an anti-racist environment. This will be an interactive session that will help educators centre their practice on equity, inclusion, and care. A short, optional individual pre-session activity will be shared one week prior to the event.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Identify potentially harmful situations in your course design and teaching practice.
  • Apply potential remedies toward creating an anti-racist teaching and learning environment.
  • Identify where to go for resources and support to assist with creating and fostering an anti-racist classroom.
