OER as a Tool to Decenter Whiteness: A Queer Psychology Case Study

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Special topics courses are excellent places to experiment with OER. Using a variety of scholarly and non-scholarly sources can help students connect to complicated topics and engage with personal stories. OER can also supplement voices and perspectives that are frequently left out of traditionally published textbooks and broaden subject matter into interdisciplinary domains. In this session, I will discuss my plans for and methods of designing an upper-level course, Queer Psychology, that centered queer and trans people of color. Specifically, I will walk through my approach to setting my course content and assessment goals and objectives and finding textual and multimedia sources, using a theoretical framework based on intersectional theory, queer theory, and liberation. While I will use my Queer Psychology course as an example course, I will also offer suggestions for ways to use OER to decenter whiteness in other subject areas.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify OER sources that can decenter whiteness in their own disciplines
  • Identify ways to center justice and liberation in their curriculum
