Event Date & Time
This event is part of the CTLT Winter Institute, taking place from December 11-15, 2023.
Let’s explore some of the ways we can incorporate the principles of community accountability into our teaching!
Community accountability is a grassroots approach to addressing sexualized and gender-based violence in marginalized communities by turning to creative and collective interventions at both the interpersonal and community levels. The insights and principles drawn from models of community accountability have the potential to go far beyond interventions that respond to past violence, they can also assist us in creating and maintaining safer and more inclusive communities – including communities of learning. In this informative workshop, we will focus on teaching content related to the humanities and social sciences through an anti-oppression lens. We will provide a brief overview of the history of community accountability models, as well as a place to discuss the key principles, insights and lessons that we can draw from models of community accountability. The last hour of the workshop will feature discussion and reflection activities to draw out some practical pedagogical tools for applying these principles to our work.
