King's College, Strand, London DECOLONISING CURRICULUM KNOWLEDGE:National and International perspectives and approaches to teaching and learning.

Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk


Decolonising the Curriculum has been trending for quite some time now as a term in education, nationally and internationally .
How is this being interpreted across higher education and teachers’ professional practice in the UK?
What does it look like to educate through a decolonised framework of knowledge?
How is this term situated and understood socially and historically as driving action for change across global educational contexts?

In my response to these questions, a brief review is given to the activism stimulated by students in UK higher education in their campaign for decolonising of curriculum. Next, I ask: Why Decolonising Curriculum Knowledge? I then situate the talk with a case study presentation of my work in Initial Teacher Education which is for educating through a decolonised framework of knowledge.

Following this, I bring discussion to my most recent scholarly work: Decolonising Curriculum Knowledge: International Perspectives and Interdisciplinary Approaches. I will share some examples of Decolonising work that I have collated in this volume that challenges approaches to teaching and learning the formal curriculum knowledge that is used as a power to perpetuate cultural reproduction, in the relationship between the state and its people.
