Decolonising Education from Theory to Praxis – Decolonising the curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment

July 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Taking place on Zoom, 1pm to 2pm (2pm to 2:30pm discussion)

Building on the theoretical insights developed in the previous seminars in this series, this seminar considers the specific role of decolonising the curriculum within the broader aims of decolonisation and epistemic justice. It will focus on what it means in practical terms to decolonise the curriculum and the implications for assessment and pedagogy.

The seminar will focus on a number of specific disciplinary areas and consider the following questions:

  • How can we can develop critical awareness amongst our students of coloniality through our teaching and assessment practices?
  • How can we embed understanding of the debt that Western knowledge owes to other cultures/ civilisations?
  • How can we retell the relationship between the disciplines and the development of colonialism?
  • How can we relate how and what we teach to ongoing relations of coloniality?
