Fostering Inclusive Communities
What is anti-oppression? What is anti-racism? How can I leverage my curiosity to create more inclusive communities? In this webinar, participants will learn about terminology related to equity-centred education. They will then use that knowledge, as well as their previous experiences, to discuss how they can help create inclusive virtual communities.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify terminology related to anti-oppression and inclusivity.
- Reflect on how systems of oppression appear in everyday life.
- Describe how systems of oppression manifest in a virtual context.
Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) and Our Shared Spaces (OSS) are committed to providing educational content that is accessible to as many audiences as possible, regardless of ability. In the COVID-19 context, our workshops are provided via Zoom with automatic transcription enabled. Our PowerPoints go through an accessibility-checker, and if instructions are provided, they are given verbally and via written text. We provide content warnings throughout the workshop as needed. As a participant, you will have ample opportunity for varied engagement, some examples are via the Zoom chat function, breakout rooms, listening, and verbally in the larger group. There are no scheduled breaks but we encourage participants to take them as needed.
