This webinar will engage participants in a conversation about how to use the affordances of online spaces to develop antiracist writing pedagogies that can function to restore language equity and justice in first-year composition courses. More specifically, the facilitator will provide a framework to investigate writing and languaging identities through antiracist pedagogies (Baker-Bell, 2020) and Pedagogical Cultural Historical Activity Theory (P-CHAT) paired with transnational and translingual perspectives (Sánchez-Martín & Walker). The facilitator will also share specific examples of how she facilitates antiracist pedagogies in her online first-year composition courses, invite participants to reflect on how their own language identities inform their teaching, and use the proposed framework to develop their pedagogies. 

Participants will: 

  • Be introduced to a framework for introducing antiracist pedagogies in their online courses
  • Reflect on the ways their own language identities inform their teaching 
  • Engage in small group activities and share key takeaways with the full group 
  • Discuss specific strategies for facilitating antiracist pedagogies online
