Event Details

Anti-Racist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum Workshop

The 6th annual Anti-Racist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum (ARPAC) Workshop will take place August 4-8, 2014 at SCSU's Twin Cities Graduate Center, 6401 Sycamore Court N., Maple Grove, MN 55369. The award-winning workshop is open to teaching faculty and educators from all higher education institutions.

 

The ARPAC workshop is an innovative initiative that makes significant contributions to improve teaching and student learning. ARPAC is a faculty development workshop which supports faculty who incorporate anti-racist pedagogy in their classrooms and disciplines. The main objective of the workshop is to examine how race, racism, and privilege frame our professional lives and to discover how racism manifests in our classrooms. The workshop provides useful ideas on how to incorporate anti-racism instructional methods into courses across disciplines, across campuses. ARPAC participants will adapt strategies, tools, and methods for developing anti-racist pedagogy and assessment of student learning within the classroom. Another objective is to connect the classroom to broader university goals and transform how race, racism, and privilege function within higher education institutions.

The workshop will be led by nationally recognized scholars Dr. Victor Rodriguez, California State University, Long Beach and Dr. Emily Drew, Willamette University. Participants will develop curriculum modifications for existing or new courses with implementation in future semesters and will engage in ongoing follow-up meetings during the 2014-2015 academic year.

 

The workshop is open to all faculty including fixed term, adjunct instructors, and teaching graduate students. Non-faculty members who wish to apply anti-racist pedagogy to a specific educational project, initiative, or program may also register.  SCSU faculty who take the ARPAC workshop are required to submit a modified syllabus or course activity, attend follow-up sessions, present during faculty workshop days in January 2015, and submit a final written reflection.
