Description

The Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX) is expanding their scope this autumn by piloting a racial justice grant. This new opportunity will support instructors who are incorporating assignments, resources and approaches for teaching students about issues facing Black Americans and other marginalized groups. Grant winners will infuse their curricula with diverse voices and invite conversations around racial justice across disciplines and Ohio State campuses.

Nine grant winners were selected to receive $500 to support their efforts in incorporating a racial justice component into their course this fall. All newly added resources will be open or made freely available, supporting our efforts to reduce the cost of course materials at Ohio State.

Dr. Moritz was one of the awardees and he and his team are expanding on the curriculum on race and racism already taught in four introductory Anthropology courses, while developing an overarching framework to provide a comprehensive approach across subfields. They will also develop workshops for graduate teaching assistants, to better prepare them to teach these topics.
