Friday, September 24, 2021 and Saturday, September 25, 2021, online

 

All Pratt community members are welcome to join us for this event. If you would like your students to join, please have them RSVP individually to get the link. Feel free to project any sessions from the Fall Forum in your in-person classes as well. 

You are welcome to come in and out of the Fall Forum as your time allows. If you are only available for one session, RSVP for the entire event and join the link when you are able to!

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and Project Third (P3), Fine Arts: Decolonial Art Pedagogies present the Fall Forum 2021: Pedagogies of Reparation and Rebuilding featuring several ongoing collaborative initiatives—currently underway within Pratt — concerned with implementing and developing pedagogies of reparation and rebuilding. The Forum will gather members of the Pratt community for two days of discussion aimed at expanding notions of education and equity, from classroom dynamics to systems of governance and administration, from archiving histories to BIPOC and queer-driven projects of radical inclusion and participation. Presenters will share ideas and practices for promoting equitable learning opportunities through decolonial approaches to an inclusive curriculum and pedagogy. Raising critical questions about how to respond to the myriad crises which were laid bare—once again—by the COVID19 pandemic and their effects within Pratt, the Forum features sessions that consider repairing or rebuilding learning environments, institutional structures, and social politics through the lenses of race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender, and disability. To deemphasize traditional conference presentations, the Fall Forum presents mostly collective endeavors. “Collective” means collaborations among faculty, within a department, across departments, between staff, faculty, and students, or engagements beyond Pratt.

There will be three concurrent breakout rooms to choose from for each time slot. During breaks between sessions you will get the chance to join the breakout room for the session you’d like to join next.

Follow up recordings and resources from the forum will be posted on this page.
