Decolonising the curriculum expert is University of Kent inspirational speaker

The Founder and Director of Black British Academics is the inspirational speaker for a University of Kent workshop in Medway that will reflect on the decolonisation, democratisation and diversification of the UK curriculum.

Dr Deborah Gabriel will lead the 3D Pedagogy Workshop on Wednesday 27 February 2019 from 14.00-15.30 in the Rochester Building at the University’s Medway campus.
Dr Gabriel, a senior lecturer at Bournemouth University, has carried out extensive research into the experiences of black academics and the challenges of decolonising the curriculum. She is well known for her expertise on racial inequality in higher education and disparities in pay and progression.

The event aims to equip participants with a basic understanding of critical race pedagogy (a theoretical took applied to understand racism impacts on teaching), social justice pedagogy and critical reflective practice, enhancing educational practice by increasing cultural competence.
The event is part of the Student Success Strategy in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences (SSES). Head of the School, Professor Claire Peppiatt-Wildman, said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from Dr Gabriel. Our focus in on inclusive teaching and by targeting education practice, we enhance the outcomes for students of colour and enrich the learning process for students of all ethnic backgrounds.’

The event is free and open to all. To book please visit the event’s dedicated booking page here.
