Event description
This symposium will explore the nature and definition of decolonising the curriculum through the lens of race.

About this Event

Recently there has been much debate about the idea of decolonising the curriculum as a way of reducing the gaps in attainment, however, the question that is often is asked is "what do i need to do?". This symposium, which features a keynote from Jason Arday, editor of Dismantling Race in Higher Education: Racism, Whiteness and Decolonising the Academy, will explore the nature and definition of decolonising the curriculum through the lens of race. Throughout the event presenters will illustrate the efforts that they are taking to ensure there is equity within their practices and policies. There will be a mixture of interactive session and culminating a symposium to debrief/reconcile the various knowledge acquired and understanding with a view of identifying tangible steps and or activities that can be used in practice.

The event will:

- Create a space to develop our institutional understanding of decolonising the curriculum.

- Discuss the notion of the student journey in the context of decolonising practices and procedures.
