Community of Practice: Culturally Responsive Pedagogy

Date(s): Tuesday, September 19 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Location: UFV Abbotsford Campus, Building G (G124)

Culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP) is an approach that challenges deficit perspectives and draws on students’ strengths to foster success. Join a community of staff and faculty interested in exploring CRP-informed topics, theories, and activities related to this approach. Facilitated by Teaching and Learning Specialist, Victoria Surtees, the community is a space to share practices and resources, ask questions, and collaborate.

This year, we are scheduling with equity in mind: we will be meeting monthly as a community but there will be two meeting times for you to choose from. Come to the same one every time, or switch it up when you need to.

  • Tuesdays 9-10:30;
  • Wednesdays, 2:30-4pm.

Below are the dates, topics, and modality: 

  • Sept. 19th (9-10:30) & 20th (2:30-4pm) – What is CRP and what is this community about? (in-person)
