Inclusive Pedagogy: Privilege Matters

April 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The College of Liberal Arts, the Department of Communication and Journalism, Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, CITL, and the Department of English present:

During this interactive workshop, participants will explore how and why privilege is relevant to inclusive pedagogy.  They will learn or relearn the systemic nature of privilege and its relationship with dominant belief systems.  They will discuss challenges and opportunities associated with acknowledging individual and collective privilege.  Participants will also receive information and insights about privilege dynamics and inclusive teaching and learning.  In addition, participants will develop an action plan for addressing privilege in their teaching practices.

Professor Emerita Brenda J. Allen (PH.D., Howard University), author of Difference Matters: Communicating Social Identity, retired in April 2019 as the Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Colorado (CU) Denver and the Anschutz Medical Campus.  During almost 30 years in the CU system, Dr. Allen developed a track record for scholarship, teaching, service, mentorship, and training related to organizational communication, social identity, power dynamics, and leadership, with an emphasis on higher education.
