Please help us identify specific processes and/or procedures within the Teaching and Learning area that need addressing by using our Feedback Form.

Training

While the University is developing its dedicated anti-racism training, all SLS staff are required to complete Understanding Race Bias and Unconscious Bias modules via Moodle by 5 October 2020. Completion (within the last 12 months from 5 October) will be monitored by the School. The Unconscious Bias module was designed for staff on recruitment panels, but many of the lessons have a wider application. PGR students are invited to take both modules too.

Organisational Development make further courses available via their webpages. The University also arranged a series of dates for staff to attend webinars aimed at combatting racism in the workplace ('Be an Active Bystander' and 'Combating Micro-Incivilities'), which can be booked online.

All students are encouraged to take a Moodle course on University Values.

Further training opportunities for students and staff will be advertised as soon as they become available.

Anti-Racist Pedagogy

The Anti-Racist Pedagogy and Process in HE Learning Circle run via Warwick International Higher Education Academy (WIHEA) offers support to staff on making their modules anti-racist. Please refer to our Resources section for anti-racist / decolonising curriculum pedagogy literature.
