Teaching and Learning Brown Bag - Checking White Privilege: White Professors in a Diverse Classroom

February 21
1:00 PM — 2:00 PM
CETLS, 199 Chambers Street, Room S510D

In this turbulent political era, what are some best practices faculty can use to "check" their white privilege in the BMCC multi-cultural classroom? How can faculty sensitively address racism and xenophobia in ways that are affirming and productive for students? What are some methods faculty can use to respect and acknowledge the primacy of students' direct experience with racism and xenophobia while maintaining classroom structure? Also, how should students respond to a professor who is doubly privileged because of their authority and their race?  

Join this session to talk about these difficult issues and discuss successful strategies for checking one's privilege and creating a safe and productive learning space for students. The discussion will be led by Dr. Jaime Weida from the English Department, and has been organized and will be facilitated by the African Heritage Committee at BMCC. AHC invites all faculty, staff, and students to attend this event, and encourages them to learn more about the other month-long celebrations and events organized by AHC. Please contact Dean Christopher Shults (cshults@bmcc.cuny.edu) for more information about these events and/or the committee.

 
This session is part of a faculty-led "brown bag" series on pedagogy that takes place once a month in CETLS. Each meeting will focus on a specific topic related to teaching and learning. We will discuss effective teaching strategies as well as challenges in a non-formal environment. Please bring your own lunch!
 
Please RSVP to cetls@bmcc.cuny.edu.
