Ibram Kendi writes in How to Be an Anti-Racist (2019) that “there is no neutrality in the racism struggle. The opposite of ‘racist’ isn’t ‘not racist.’ It is “antiracist.’ …The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it—and then dismantle it.” Racism is reproduced in institutions throughout our society, and higher education is not exempt. Faculty have an important role to play in dismantling racism in their own classrooms. In this virtual workshop from the Center for Teaching and Learning, participants will first hear stories from students who have experienced racism at Georgia Tech. Participants will then identify concrete strategies to engage in antiracism pedagogy through their course goals, content, classroom facilitation, and assessment strategies.
The BlueJeans link will be sent to participants upon registration. Because of the sensitive nature of the conversation, this workshop will not be recorded.
