Inclusion webinar series: Decolonising the curriculum

Webinar details

Decolonising the curriculum was recorded in October 2020 to celebrate Black History month and was the third in the Presidential Taskforce series on Diversity and Inclusion.   

Access to the recording is being provided for free as part of BPS Learn.  

This webinar examined how decolonisation can re-appropriate cultural ideas of people that were subverted by colonial history. We examined what is being taught, how it is being taught and what is missing. We asked questions about whose voice isn’t being heard and how to bring those voices to the forefront.

Decolonising the curriculum is not about moving or dumping what is being taught presently, it’s about creating space and introducing multiple voices set to enrich and empower the curriculum as well as continue the long journey of decolonising the mind.
