This workshop responds to recent calls that universities must do more to address entrenched inequalities and discriminatory practices around race and ethnicity, by focusing less on diversity and more on anti-racist pedagogies. The day will be structured around three sessions, which ask how we can develop teaching, learning, and research environments that support all students to succeed in their studies. The opening sessions will explore historical and theoretical contexts of anti-racist pedagogy in Britain and will include interactive elements. In the afternoon, we focus more on current classroom practice and student experience in higher education, asking participants to think about not only what we teach, but how we teach. The keynote will be given by Dr Meleisa Ono-George, Director of Student Experience and Associate Professor of Caribbean History at the University of Warwick. The workshop is open to anyone currently teaching in the university, or informing teaching, from postgrads to professors. We will explore these questions from a range of disciplinary perspectives.

The event is free of charge to attend and lunch will be provided. To sign-up, go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/anti-racist-education-history-theory-practice-tickets-75127810303
