    AT Program: Anti-Racist Pedagogy Elective Workshop

    What does it mean to enact anti-racist pedagogy? How does anti-racist pedagogy shape our work both inside and outside of the classroom? In this workshop, we will gain a clearer understanding of what an anti-racist teaching practice can look like, particularly in the context of teaching in historically White institutions such as Georgetown University. We will also identify and develop specific strategies for building and applying an anti-racist teaching practice.

    AT Program: Syllabus Design Required Workshop

    Designing a syllabus is much more than picking out your readings. In this workshop, we will cover the fundamental components and best practices of good syllabus design through discussion and a hands-on opportunity to practice “backward design.” Participants should bring a syllabus or ideas for a syllabus to the workshop to develop and receive informal feedback from the group.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
