Decolonising the curriculum: challenges and opportunities for teaching and learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

A renewed call to ‘decolonise’ the university curriculum has marked a shift in thinking about education and what should form the canon of curriculum content. It has been amplified further here in the UK by the ‘Rhodes must fall’ campaign. However,
fresh approaches and opportunities for advancing practice in teaching and learning, with an aim to diversify the university curriculum for teaching and learning, are not without challenges. Our paper reflects on the meaning of decolonising the curriculum and on attempts to decolonise the curriculum at both institutional and subject specific level. In this article, which is in three sections, we use examples from our own practice to reflect on some of the challenges of decolonising the curriculum and opportunities for sharing good practices amongst colleagues.
