Decolonising the Curriculum banner

This workshop introduces a toolkit that is intended to act as a briefing for programme and module convenors (including students interested in module design), on what ‘decolonising’ learning and teaching might entail. The toolkit was developed by the decolonising SOAS working group and a member of this group will be running the workshop.

This event is free.

They say "At its root it is about making what we teach and how we teach it more responsive to the problems of colonial and racialised privilege and discrimination within our teaching practice. This is not a set of prescriptions but a set of suggestions and ideas for colleagues and students to think through, individually and collectively. It is animated by a spirit of critical dialogue within education,  and is also connected to wider institutional questions about the principles and practices of good teaching – in particular work on racialised attainment and inclusive pedagogy. Its aim is to stimulate reflection, dialogue and changes in teaching practice that reflect our values as an intellectual community and as an institution." (Decolonising SOAS Working Group decolonisation@soas.ac.uk).

We are incredibly grateful to our colleagues at SOAS for agreeing to share their valuable experience. Places on this workshop are open to staff and students. Places will be limited (so book early!) and some pre-reading is suggested.
