Event Description

Note: This session is intended for Graduate Students, and Undergraduate and Graduate TAs only.

Registration for this workshop is full. Please add your name to the waitlist HERE.

In this session we will identify key concepts in anti-racism and solidarity. Through an interrogation of complex identities in teaching practice, we will provide session participants with tools and approaches that they can employ to identify racism and interrupt harmful dynamics in the learning sphere. Teaching strategies in this session include reflection, small group work, and other interactive modalities. The workshop is both a teaching tool and resource for participants to explore their own teaching contexts.
