    Activity: External talk or presentationOral presentation

    Description

    In advancing opportunities to expand upon discussions of the research work found in BERA Research Intelligence Issue 142 on Decolonising the Curriculum, this special event will be led by convenors of the BERA Race Ethnicity and Education Special Interest Group. We will bring together academic scholars, primary and secondary schoolteachers, college lecturers, higher education academics, phD students and researchers involved with education from across Scotland, England. Wales and Northern Ireland to share on the pedagogic challenges and opportunities with decolonising the curriculum. At the core is considering the importance of challenging the generally Eurocentric epistemological default positioning of school, college and university curricula. Presentations will offer findings from national and international evidence-based research, and critical theoretical perspectives used to assist with advancing approaches to practice in schools, colleges and universities.
