Culturally Responsive Pedagogy E-Course
This online, self paced course presents engaging video lessons as well as interviews with Canadians from all walks of life, holding space for honest discussions on internal and institutional biases and providing strategies on how to consciously push aside such biases so they have less influence on one’s behavior and feelings. Suitable for students and teachers in all disciplines, this course has been designed to offer as a reflective and introspective look into the nature of unconscious biases and their subtle impacts on every facet of life.
Designed for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of how biases affect all people. Importantly, how to engage in constant self-examination to ensure a heightened cognizance of how to mitigate the impact biases have on our decisions, behaviors and relationships.
(Note: everyone is going to be influenced by bias, that is inevitable, but the goal of this course is to start sitting with the discomforts of privilege, to begin unlearning and consciously working against the influences of such misguided homogenous notions)
