Addressing Power and Privilege in CEL Through Anti-Racist and Anti-Colonial Approaches
March 10 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EST
Presented by the Centre for Community Partnerships
Facilitator: Aditi Mehta, Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, Urban Studies
Join us for a discussion on Addressing Power and Privilege in CEL Through Anti-racist and Anti-colonial Approaches. Drawing on her experiences teaching ethnography in an Inside-Out prison classroom and co-producing media projects with residents in Regent Park, Professor Mehta will lead a conversation on power and privilege in CEL. She will also share how she creates assignments and facilitates dialogues to help students become aware of their own and others’ positionality.
Community-Engaged Learning (CEL) Faculty Community of Practice (CoP): Our peer-led Community of Practice Gatherings offer community-engaged learning (CEL) instructors a recurring conversation space to share best practices, troubleshoot, discuss relevant literature, and collaborate on CEL teaching-related issues. Each gathering is facilitated by a different faculty member, who shares a challenge, a case study, an article or other resource to catalyze discussion. Faculty Community of Practice (CoP) Gatherings are open to all instructors and faculty across the tri-campus.
