Curriculab was designed as a curricular laboratory that creates a space for faculty to delve into curriculum with sustained mentorship and guidance. It supports faculty and departments with changes, small or large, by helping plan workflow, mapping out the stages for change to happen, and by creating connections with subject matter experts who can help guide decolonization, antiracism, and sustainability initiatives.
Who can use Curriculab?
Curriculab is for faculty members or departments
Small – individual courses
Medium – program reviews
Large – new programs
Faculty members or departments should reach out to the Associate Dean, Academic in the Faculty of Fine Arts to participate.
How it works
Operating on a volunteer basis, departments will apply to enter the Curriculab platform, after which mentorship would include initiatives such as:
- Meetings with Donna Goodleaf at CTL to explore ways to decolonize curriculum
- Creating connections with colleagues in different departments or faculties who are working on similar changes
- Brainstorming sessions to open up future thinking.
- Support from subject matter experts who can help guide decolonization, antiracism, and sustainability initiatives.
The ultimate goal of Curriculab is to have a long-term platform that allows faculty members and departments to explore radical change and to develop the skills, expertise, and confidence to make changes together.
