In our fourth and final Early Career Fest session, Marlon Moncrieffe (Senior Lecturer, School of Education, University of Brighton) joined Alison Peacock (Chief Executive, Chartered College of Teaching) in delivering a presentation on decolonising the curriculum. In this webinar we explores:
- Marlon’s new book: Decolonising the History Curriculum
- What do we mean by ‘decolonising the curriculum’?
- Practical examples to diversifying the curriculum
Participants also had the opportunity to ask questions in a Q&A towards the end of the webinar.
Across one week, the Chartered College of Teaching hosted a range of fantastic online events to support you as you set out on your teaching journey. Learn from teachers and academics and access a wealth of insights to make the strongest possible start to your career. No matter what challenges lie ahead, the Chartered College of Teaching is here to support our fantastic profession to change lives and deliver world-class teaching. #ECFest
