FSAC Offsite: Alternative Grading Workshop (May 12)and Surviving Academia for BIPOC (May 14)

All members of FSAC are invited to consider two special offsite events organized by the Anti-Racist and Decolonial Working Group and hosted on Zoom during this year’s conference. Whether or not you, your colleagues, or your students are attending the conference, these offsite events are an opportunity for all members to connect in collective efforts of institutional transformation. The first event (May 12) is open to all FSAC members. The second event (May 14) is open to self-identifying IBPOC members and requires event registration. Details for each event are below. A reminder that FSAC offers complementary membership to IBPOC and racialized students, researchers, and faculty.

Both offsite events are sponsored by the Faculty of Culture + Community, ECUAD

A+++ Workshop on Alternative Grading
Co-Chaired by Malini Guha (Carleton University) and Alla Gadassik (Emily Carr University of Art + Design) with presentations by Sue Shon (Emily Carr University of Art + Design) and Benjamin Woo (Carleton University).

While calls to ‘decolonize’ curricula have gained speed and direction over the last several years, accompanied by cross-disciplinary exchanges on overhauling syllabi, canons, and teaching methods, this workshop addresses the imperative to rethink grading practices as a component of this labour. The workshop grounds itself in the premise that developing anticolonial and anti-racist methods of teaching and learning should also involve rethinking standard means of evaluation that often reproduce colonial and white supremacist logics. Panelists will present examples of alternative grading approaches, and a workshop component will engage all attendees in small-group and collective responses to prompts and exercises.
