The New England Faculty Development Consortium (NEFDC) is hosting the following workshop as part of its spring 2023 virtual workshop series on authentic learning:

Accomplices in the Classroom: Social Justice- and Anti-Racism-Informed Teaching

Friday, March 3, 2023

12:00 - 2:00 PM (online)

Facilitated by Katie R. Place, Quinnipiac; Adrienne Wallace, Grand Valley State University; Nneka Logan, Virginia Tech

Social justice in higher education has evolved to mean creating teaching and learning environments that support all students equitably and seeking to address potential gaps among students based on race-ethnicity, gender identity, religion, ability, or learning potential. Yet, to discuss social justice in higher education we first must face racism within the academy. 

You will learn foundational concepts about accompliceship, social justice, and racism; hear facilitator stories of how they worked to develop a sense of accompliceship at their respective universities; see examples of accompliceship-informed class activities and assignments, and engage in personal discussion and work toward development of accompliceship-informed activities or spaces of your own.

Those registering from WPI pay the lower fee of $30 because of WPI's institutional membership in the NEFDC.
