Event Date & Time

  • May 12, 2021
    10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Description

This workshop has been designed for instructors who are interested in joining conversations about anti-racism and looking for an entry point to their learning journey. This session introduces fundamental concepts such as power, privilege, and positionally, and builds a strong foundation to support your learning in anti-racism and its application to teaching and learning. This workshop is meant to be an introductory session to the Anti-Racist Teaching Series.

This session is a blend of asynchronous and synchronous components

Asynchronous Pre-Work 

Canvas Module Link:

The module is self-paced, and it is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the module before the synchronous session on May 12th. We estimate the online module to take most participants approximately 2 hours to complete. 

The online module was designed to introduce you to some complex issues surrounding the concepts and theoretical frameworks of identities, power, and privilege. You will be presented with self-reflective exercises, informative activities and videos to help you explore and consider how identities, power and privilege intersect with your teaching pedagogy and your personal, professional, and academic lives.

Synchronous Session

For the synchronous component, participants will meet through Zoom and:

    • Engage in conversation on concepts introduced in the module;
    • Share their insights from the online module;
    • Extend their learning into anti-racism in teaching and learning.


Our goal for this blended session is to build a strong conceptual foundation for participants to further explore anti-racism in teaching and learning.
