CTLT Anti-racist Teaching Series— Exploring Complex Classroom Dynamics Using Case-Studies

“Exploring Complex Classroom Dynamics Using Case-Studies”

This workshop is part of the Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology’s Anti-Racist Teaching Series.

This workshop will explore complex classroom dynamics, such as microaggressions and tensions when students have conflicting world views. Drawing from select Open Case Studies at UBC that highlight Indigenous student experiences in diverse classrooms, participants will work in breakout groups to unpack the scenarios and discuss how they resonate with our current classroom contexts and climates.

Concepts and topics that may be raised include: tokenism, conflicting world views, burden of representation, course topics that impact students personally, and self-determination. Participants who have taken other workshops within the Anti-Racist Teaching Series will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to their analysis of cases and come up with practical strategies.
