Teaching Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education - a C-SAP Resource Guide

Welcome to the Teaching Race and Ethnicity website, hosted by C-SAP, the Higher Education Academy Subject Network for Sociology, Anthropology, Politics. C-SAP offers a variety of ways to support teaching and learning within our subject areas, and this site is one one example of how we are engaging with our subject communities and developing new and innovative resources. The picture montage to the right is an example of some of our image resources hosted in slide.com. See more about this in our resource page.

The Teaching Race and Ethnicity website is intended for all interested scholars, researchers, teachers and others who want to engage with key issues of race, ethnicity, diversity, multiculture and racism. The aim is to provide critical resources and suggestions for teaching, learning and assessment. It is hoped that the site will become a focal point for discussion and progressive ideas for enabling understanding, eradicating misconceptions and confronting racisms in educational practice and in society more generally.

Over the past few years, the theme of teaching "race and ethnicity" has developed into a sustained area of activity for C-SAP, and we hope that this site will help to bring together some of the outputs of this work so far, and help provide a direction for future work. Please treat this site as a work in progress, and send your comments to us.
