Description

Curriculum 2025 is organising two interactive webinars to support teaching staff to identify decolonisation ideas for their modules and courses.
There are two sessions in the series, on January 11 and 20. They will contain different workshop content on the two dates, but can be attended singly if you can only make it to one of them.
Workshop 2: Will be facilitated by Oliver Wood from the Curriculum 2025 team, and Jasbar Singh, module leader on the MSc in Agroecology, Water and Food Sovereignty

What are the benefits?

At Coventry, we aim to decolonise the curriculum by providing the learning materials and experiences that engage and support students to understand the social and cultural underpinnings of their discipline. We encourage staff and students to think critically about how knowledge is created, by who and in whose interest. This workshop is designed to introduce you to decolonisation and how you can think critically about your own discipline area. To find out more, view the toolkit created by Curriculum 2025 https://curriculum.coventry.domains/decolonisation/

Topics covered include:

The workshop will be interactive and will focus on two themes. Participants will select one of the following workshops to attend:
• How we teach, focussing on the ‘hidden curriculum’ – unintended, implicit and hidden messages we send to students, and
• How we prepare the anti-racist future leaders we need in order to deliver a fairer future for everyone.

Who should attend?

All staff who are involved in the design or delivery of the curriculum.
