Co-organized and co-facilitated (with Shannon Jolliff Dettore) 6 sessions (total 9 hours) of a faculty learning community for 11 faculty. FLC description: How do we foster active, collaborative learning spaces where every person can bring their full self? At a predominantly white institution where students and faculty are often navigating multiple forms of marginalization–across race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and more–our role as faculty is to actively nurture a culture of inclusion. This work starts with ourselves.
The community explored dynamics of oppression and privilege in relation to ourselves and our learning spaces. Drawing upon intergroup dialogue pedagogy, we facilitated faculty learning on: - Developing inclusive norms for the classroomFacilitating effective listening and connection across difference in learning spaces -Engaging in our own identity work: unpacking socialization, dismantling white supremacy, and decolonization -Navigating conflict and resistance in the classroom -Developing our tools and support network for continuing the work of social justice in education
