JOIN US IN WELCOMING DR. TRAORE BACK TO LANGARA!
This session, Dr. Traore will discuss: Developing an Anti-Racist Organization: A Model
Developing an anti-racist organization requires a system’s change and organizational
development approach combined with anti-racism theory and practice. In this talk, Dr. Traoré discusses a theoretical model of change that targets the organization, more so than individuals, as the key client of an anti-racist intervention. The model presented uses a developmental approach.
Attendees will thus learn about the different stages on the continuum of a segregated
organization to an anti-racist multicultural organization.
This talk is best suited for persons who have awareness of systemic racism, and would like some insights on what an anti-racist multicultural organization looks like.

Early in 2020, students all over the world experienced a sudden, dramatic, and unprecedented shift in their academic world. Four months on, we have found ourselves finishing one semester remotely, delivering another fully online, and preparing for at least two more semesters teaching and learning in the virtual environment. At the end of the spring semester, two of our colleagues collected information to help them understand the impact of this move to remote learning.
Our second contribution comes from Cameron MacDonald in the department of Biology. Cameron has worked with his colleagues to collect and analyze data on learning before and after the shift to remote teaching. In this piece, the authors statistically evaluate performance on online assessments compared to face to face assessments.
TCDC is providing a platform for instructors and instructional staff to share their reflections, opinions, and findings. If you want to contribute a piece to the perspectives series, please contact Jessica Kalra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
