Why is Academia Still So White? Implications for Pedagogy

May 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Faculty of Community Services (FCS) Learning & Teaching Committee at Toronto Metropolitan University (Formerly Ryerson University) is pleased to invite you to the next event in our FCS Teaching Talks series. This series of panel events will offer the FCS teaching community an opportunity to discuss our teaching and classroom experience over the last term and to share our reflections and ideas in an informal and collegial environment.

On May 26, join us and fellow FCS colleagues and share your thoughts and reflections on:

  • How can the whiteness of the university impact classroom teaching and learning experiences?
  • Teaching about anti-Black racism may be experienced as a paradox of personal and institutional responsibility by Black faculty. How do you navigate this dilemma and paradox of responsibility?
  • Why are practices of resisting whiteness in learning, teaching and pedagogy necessary, and what are the challenges?
