Course Design for Racial Equity

Dr. Frank Harris III, Dr. Sim Barhoum

Anti-racism is the act of engaging in actions that intentionally counter-act racism against Black, Indigineous and People of Color (BIPOC). As noted by scholar Ibram Kendi notes that the opposite of racisms is not being non-racist, but being “anti-racist.” Bearing this in mind, this program aims to provide educators with the tools to engage in anti-racist course design, for online and in-person modalities. Participants will learn how racism impacts students’ learning, growth and development as well as tangible strategies to intentionally counter-act the challenges in their curricula. This will include tangible recommendations for course titles, learning objectives, syllabi, lesson planning and more.
