Hosted by the ALT West Midlands Group
There is a global awareness of the extent to which our societies and our educational institutions are permeated and dominated by the ideas, habits, values and structures of the white English majority culture. This awareness now is reflected in moves to ‘decolonise the curriculum’ (and to decolonise research, not to mention #RhodesMustFall). This clearly begs questions about decolonising learning technology, questions about the extent to which our digital pedagogies, our digital technologies and us as learning technologists are complicit in this ignoring or suppressing of other ways of learning, understand and knowing, to the detriment of us all.
The Education Observatory (https://www.wlv.ac.uk/research/institutes-and-centres/education-observatory/) at the University of Wolverhampton will be hosting an informal free online meeting of the West Midlands SIG of ALT, the Association for Learning Technology, www.alt.ac.uk, to explore these issues with some challenging questions, fascinating insights and provocative ideas.
