Become a more just and equitable educator
The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning has many ways to help you better align your teaching with principles of equity, diversity, inclusion and anti-oppression.
A commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion in teaching and learning means a commitment to lifelong self-education and ongoing action. The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning offers numerous workshops and events to help you become a more just and equitable educator, all coming up in April and May.
Equity, diversity and inclusion workshops
The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning offers workshops that centre diverse voices and viewpoints. Sign up for one of our April workshops such as:
Centering Indigenous, Black, and Racialized Peoples’ Stories in Teaching and Learning
This monthly noon-hour gathering features Indigenous, Black and racialized University of Manitoba instructors and staff sharing stories of teaching and learning from a variety of cultural perspectives. This series will affirm and centre distinct educational experiences, build solidarity across diverse communities and provoke reflection and action among all who listen.
Indigenous Storicals (Storytelling)
The word “storical” refers to personal narratives, histories, experiences, truths and entertainment. Storicals, a play on the word historical, serves as a prefix that describes a non-gender point of view that can educate us regarding morals, sacred places and in helping others through teaching and learning using Indigenous Knowledges (IK). Within this four-part foundational workshop series, we will hear from three Indigenous orators who will guide us through various teachings of story, be it in the past, the present and future. We invite you to explore through discussion how story could be implemented in your curricular design.
