Facing up to racism Part 1
Participants will explore the scope and dimensions of racism in Australia and the impact of racism on individuals and communities.
This course will count towards Teacher Identified Professional Development (PD) hours (known as Elective PD under NESA’s new Accreditation of PD Courses Policy).
The Facing up to racism - Part 1 online course is the ﬁrst stage of the Facing up to racism blended professional learning. It is a prerequisite for the second stage, the Facing up to racism – Part 2 workshop. Participants are encouraged to complete both parts but the online part can be completed as a standalone course.
The Facing up to racism - Part 1 online course will develop the skills and conﬁdence for school staff to identify, understand, discuss and challenge racism in a positive and constructive way.
Current research highlights that understanding racism is the ﬁrst step in developing anti-racism interventions. Understanding includes recognition of the historical origins of racism and the impacts of racism. The course content of this online course includes the scope and dimensions of racism in Australia and the impact of racism on individuals and communities.
To complete the course and receive the Elective PD hours, participants must: work through the online learning activities; record their notes in the participant activity book; save and upload the activity booklet to MyPL; and have their learning validated by their supervisor.
