Can We Decolonise Our Voices?

Thursday 17th March 2022, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (London Time)

We will examine ideas of what a ‘good voice’ might be, and look at the ways in which pedagogy might be informed by the legacy of colonialism.

What implications might this have on teaching and learning?

In what ways do we perpetuate colonial ideas and othering?

What role does technology play in this?

Students are invited to bring their thoughts, experiences, and suggestions about how teaching and learning about the voice can become more diverse and inclusive.
