Anti-Racist Teaching and Learning

Anti-Racist Teaching and Learning (A-RTL) programming allows staff and faculty to cultivate teaching and facilitation practices that support anti-racist solidarity. With the aim of creating equitable learning environments and caring classroom spaces where learners who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour can thrive, A-RTL provides opportunities for educators to deepen their understanding of anti-racism and anti-racist practices at an individual, community, and institutional level. 

Sessions are offered in a way that supports scaffolded learning. Each A-RTL workshop guides participants through personal reflection, interactive discussion, and other engaging activities. By participating in A-RTL programming, educators can expect to:

  • Develop an understanding of key anti-racist topics such as power, privilege, positionality, allyship, solidarity, and oppression. Gain awareness of how to cultivate teaching and facilitation practices that support anti-racist solidarity   
  • Understand how to create equitable and supportive learning environments for students who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour  
  • Adopt anti-racist frameworks and pedagogies in teaching and learning contexts at UBC 
  • Identify anti-racist practices that they can implement in their role at UBC  
  • Understand how to shape the learning environment to center student experiences  
  • Recognize how the institution impacts students, staff, and faculty who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour  
  • Learn how to counter the impact of institutional systems at UBC in order to advance anti-racism 

We welcome participants from a broad spectrum of existing knowledge and experiences, whether they are starting their anti-racist journey or have a deep understanding of anti-racism; all are welcome.
