Antiracist Writing Pedagogy Workshop

Creating an Antiracist Writing Culture

Creating an antiracist writing culture at MSU Denver begins in YOUR classroom. How you approach writing, the assignments you give, how you grade and respond to them, and how you talk about language in general matters. It can seem overwhelming to overhaul everything about your writing instruction, but don’t worry: you don’t have to do it all at once! You can start small and rethink one little bit of your writing instruction. Or, if you’re feeling ambitious, you can do a major overhaul.

Take the first step by learning about antiracist writing pedagogy and having dedicated time to revamp a syllabus, an assignment, a rubric, or a whole class by signing up for the Writing Center’s workshop.

Spring 2024 Workshops

The next workshop will take place on May 20 and 21, 2024 (Monday and Tuesday), 9-4 each day. Participants will meet again in September (exact date TBD) to brainstorm and share ideas and then will have the fall semester to make changes, small or large, to their writing instruction. They will then present their work at a showcase in the spring (exact date TBD).

Faculty who participate will get a $500 stipend.

Check back in the spring for more information and to apply.
