Anti-Racist Pedagogies: From Theory to Practice

Facilitated by Yasmine Djerbal, Centre for Teaching and Learning
Monday, January 10, 2022, 1:30-2:30pm, Zoom

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the goals and principles of anti-racist and inclusive pedagogies and be offered foundational concepts to develop in your teaching practice. Participants will learn about and reflect on their own personal and disciplinary positionalities and consider strategies for implementation. If you already have this foundational knowledge, this session may not meet your expectations, and we recommend you consider taking one of the more advanced Critical Conversation Series workshops.

Do you have questions about Accommodations and Extenuating Circumstances?

Facilitated by Yasmine Djerbal, Centre for Teaching and Learning; Jermaine Marshall, Human Rights and Equity Office; Arts and Sciences Considerations; and Queen's Student Accessibility Services
Wednesday, January 26, 2022, 11:30-12:30pm, Zoom

Do you have questions about Accommodations and Extenuating Circumstances? We have the answers with  Arts & Science Academic Consideration Team, Queen's Student Accessibility Services, Human Rights and Equity Office and the Centre for Teaching and Learning.

Instructors play a key role in fostering accessible teaching and learning spaces, as well as providing academic accommodations and consideration to students. In the first half of the session, we will explore the difference between accessibility, academic accommodations, and academic considerations, and how instructors can best support students. We will also talk about roles and responsibilities of instructors & students, accommodation procedures, as well as strategies for implementing Universal Design for Learning. The second half of the session will be dedicated to Q&As.
