Presentation & Discussion: Culturally Sustaining/Responsive Pedagogy (CSRP) and Moving Beyond Guest Speakers (Feb. 17, 1–2 p.m.)

Join Christin DePouw (Associate Professor, Education & 2021-22 Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Consultant) for a presentation and guided conversation, on Feb. 17, from 1–2 p.m. In this conversation, we consider the reliance on guest speakers within EDI work and how this “add on” approach limits true institutional transformation. We will discuss the additional professional and personal burdens that these requests place on colleagues of color and Indigenous colleagues, the role of Indigenous values (Christensen, 2011; Christensen & Poupart, n.d.2012) of respect, reciprocity, responsibility, and relationship in fostering equity-oriented instruction, and how equity-oriented educators can build their own capacity to integrate their curriculum and instruction beyond the use of guest speakers.
