Decreasing your Carnegie learning curve
so you can focus on what really matters

 

Carnegie Hacks are insights and tools to save you time and energy you can use to

advancing CE on your campus, instead. We post them every week, right here.

Let's Talk about Decolonizing SLCE


This week we pause the Carnegie Hacks series to observe the Thanksgiving Holiday.


Despite my love of all things autumn; the crisp chill in the air, the pumpkin lattes and my favorite meal of the year, the sound of crunching leaves underfoot, the scent of baking in the kitchen, the sight of glorious trees showing off all their colors, this holiday is deeply problematic. And it's a tiny piece of a much larger, pervasive culture of oppression.


So, while you are celebrating all these wonders, I encourage you to pause and check out a book that has transformed me.


Kortney Hernandez's "Service Learning as a Political Act in Education: Bicultural Foundations for a Decolonizing Pedagogy."

If your campus library doesn't carry it, don't give up. This is the time to request they add it to the shelves.

**Keep your eyes peeled in 2019 for opportunities to see Kortney and Heather present on decolonizing pedagogy and SLCE assessment.**


And now, since you've read this far, here is a bonus collage of breathtaking autumn photos that I can't stop staring at.
