ABOUT THIS SKILL UP! SESSION
In this interactive and practical Skill Up! Session, STEM educators will engage with the concept of decolonizing their curricula, as well as reflect on concepts, tools, and resources that can be integrated into specific lessons and content. Participants will debunk the assumption that this work can happen more naturally in the humanities. Throughout the session, participants will have the opportunity to workshop a lesson with fellow educators and develop action items for continuing this work within their departments and divisions.
- Engage with practical tools and resources to begin the ongoing process of decolonizing STEM curricula
- Reflect on their identities to bring awareness of how this may impact their curriculum development
- Build community with fellow educators committed to the ongoing reflection and practice necessary to fully commit to this work
