Maawanji-idiwag (They come together): Institutional Approaches to Decolonizing Curricula is a virtual discussion, where a panel of academics and practitioners experienced in theoretical decolonization and who have taken concrete steps and actions to decolonize curricula in their respective institutions will discuss opportunities and challenges for institutional approaches and practices to decolonize curricula.
The discussion will be valuable to any campus community member interested in exploring practical examples of implementing practices, programs, and policies to decolonize curricula in educational institutions. Department chairs and faculty administrators will be particularly interested in thinking about their curricula composition and course design practices. Faculty members and instructors with teaching responsibilities may also be interested in learning from the experience of these panelists in advocating for decolonized curricula. Students will also benefit from this discussion as it impacts their learning and prompts questions and reflection on how knowledge is prioritized or left out.
