This seminar explores the crucial role of anti-oppressive teaching in academia. Emphasizing the responsibility of educators, this presentation underscores the importance of revising course syllabi to combat oppressive practices, promoting diversity, and fostering a welcoming environment. Insights into the impact of language on syllabi demonstrate its power to enhance student perception, engagement, and achievement while also maintaining rigorous academic standards and fostering an environment that encourages students to strive for excellence.
