‘Why is My Curriculum White?’ is a question many students in higher education are asking. The movement, which started at UCL, has created a wave of uprising against the ‘Whiteness’, Eurocentric domination and lack of diversity in the curricula with recent launches in Bristol, Birmingham, and Manchester, and an unwavering online presence.
This list aims to introduce you to the University’s “Decolonising at Lincoln” project, with a focus on what this might mean for teaching, course design and assessment. What do we mean by decolonising/decoloniality? What does it mean to “decolonise” a module, degree programme or curriculum? How does decolonising interact with other University priorities? The list is also designed to signpost you to some of the key resources related to the study and research of education. The aim is for the list to help you to begin planning to implement and explore decolonial approaches to your teaching practice. Many of the resources are already being used by colleagues in the School of Education.
