Open Art Histories: Accessible Teaching in Remote Environments

Open Art Histories: Accessible Teaching in Remote Environments

Friday, August 7, 12:00-1:30pm EST/ 9:00-10:30 PST

Facilitated by Johanna Amos and Jen Kennedy

Zoom link to follow

As Chandra Mohanty suggests in “Under Western Eyes Revisited: Feminist Solidarity Through Anti-Capitalist Struggle” (2003), how one teaches is just as important as what one teaches when it comes to practicing anti-racist, anti-colonial, and intersectional feminist pedagogies (517). At a moment when many post-secondary instructors are developing remote or hybrid courses for the first time, the question of how we teach is an especially urgent one. This interactive workshop is a starting point for developing strategies for creating accessible, inclusive, and active remote classrooms that can be used across disciplines.

The workshop will be held on Zoom and will use the chat and breakout room features. Participants will also be asked to work collaboratively on a Google Doc. If you have any questions about using these platforms, please let us know by emailing one of the addresses below.

Space is limited, please register by Friday, July 31, 2020.  email abuis@langara.ca or openarthistories@gmail.com

Further information will be sent upon registration.
