Reckoning with the Racism and Colonialism of Nursing Education to Move Towards Health Equity and Healing

Presenter: Claire Valderama-Wallace, PhD, MPH, RN - California State University, East Bay

Cost: $25.00  |  Click here to purchase this webinar on-demand

ASL interpretation is spotlighted on the recording. Session is closed captioned.

The COVID pandemic has exacerbated centuries-in-the-making health inequities, demanding that educators, administrators, and staff in nursing education reckon with the racism, colonialism, and neoliberalism that shape how health is conceptualized, who is deemed worthy of becoming a licensed health professional, how community members are reduced to "patient" status rather than their whole selves, and how the roots of whiteness continue to shape nursing education. Let us envision our individual and collective roles to push past silence and performative statements of solidarity to sustained practice, answerability, and healing.

This session should particularly benefit faculty, staff, students, and administrators in health professions programs who are interested in advancing health professions education away from the harmful colonial biomedical model to learning spaces grounded in social justice praxis in the pursuit of health equity. We will begin with an overview of the presence of social justice and health equity in the existing infrastructure and foundational documents of nursing practice, policy, research, and education. Participants will then reflect on the presence of social justice in their programs ranging from their individual teaching/learning philosophy, scholarship, advising role(s), and service to curriculum, committee efforts, governance, scholarship, professional advancement and retention, hiring and admissions, departmental and program culture, and community relationships. We will then consider findings from recent studies examining contradictory approaches to social justice deployed by faculty and how pre-licensure nursing students experience and navigate this terrain. Finally, we will brainstorm a variety of pedagogical and programmatic approaches to nurture future generations of nurses who see health equity and anti-oppression as central to their nursing identities and career trajectory. 

Racism and Infectious Disease: Understanding the Impact of COVID-19

Presenters: Dr. Li-Chen Chin, Dr. Lily Cho, Avvy Yao-Yao Go, Dr. Jennifer Ho, and Yun Sun

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there have been an increasing number of xenophobic and racist incidents against Asians in the US and Canada, and against Africans in China--from being told “Go back to where you came from,” “Stop eating wild animals,” to being refused service, physically assaulted, or forced to get tested. Marginalized populations are disproportionally affected by the global pandemic and serve as scapegoats for failed institutional policies and practices. 

A panel of experts will present and engage in an interdisciplinary discussion to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on a transnational level, and how higher education institutions can use this opportunity to examine our policies and practices and to advocate for justice and equity for all students, staff, and faculty, and our community.   

We're not White: Racial Identity Construction of Arab American College Students

Presenter: Nina Shoman-Dajani, EdD

Cost: $25.00  |  Click here to purchase this webinar on-demand

Closed captioned

While most U.S. higher education institutions have adopted the federally designated race and ethnicity categories on their applications many sub-populations remain unrecognized and underserved. Arab American college students are one such example as they remain "invisible" in the "White" category. This session provides a space in which participants can explore the issues that Arab American college students experience when exploring their identity through the lens of a study conducted on Arab Americans college students in the Chicago Metropolitan area. In addition, this session investigates the issues surrounding the U.S. Census categorization of Arab Americans as "White". The presenter shares data collected from a study she conducted which focused on the central question: how do Arab American college students construct and understand their racial identity? Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the Arab American population and particularly college students of Arab descent whose stories shared during the presentation. This session should particularly benefit higher education practitioners and educators who are interested in race demographics, retention, support services and student sub-populations. No prior background knowledge is needed.

Hashtags and Unfollows: Race and racism in the age of social media

Presenters: Alana Anderson, PhD and Kevin Gin, PhD

Cost: $25.00  |  Click here to purchase this webinar on-demand

Limited research has been advanced that considers how social media intersects with race, racism, and gender among college students. Additionally, scholars have noted these are areas necessitating the attention of student affairs. This session presents literature, emerging research, and best practices to advance action oriented practices regarding how to best support students in the context of today's racialized and gendered social media campus cultures.

Race, Immigration, and Fake News

Presenter: Kristina Marshall, J.D.  |  Baker College

Cost: $25.00  |  Click here to purchase this webinar on-demand 

Closed captioned

The topic of immigration in the United States today is both provocative and controversial. It is often framed in an “us vs. them” way of thinking, which exacerbates tensions and distorts the realities of past history and current trends of the movement of people into the United States. A closer examination can enable us to see the ways in which race, ethnicity and color drive policy and practice without being identified or discussed. Inherent institutional and governmental racism can therefore continue to operate undercover without being exposed and eliminated. The proliferation of “alternative facts” racializes immigrants and creates a false narrative of their economic, social, educational, religious, technological and cultural contributions. This workshop explores these issues and their implications for higher education policy and practice.

Keeping the Dream Alive: A College-wide Approach to Embracing DREAMers

Presenters: Eric Lara, Ph.D., Associate Dean, Student Success and Equity | Laura Muniz, Counselor, DREAM Program | Darío Fernandez, Director, DREAM Program

Cost: $25.00  |   Click here to purchase this webinar on-demand

Closed captioned

Undocumented students bear an unusually heavy burden to attend and maintain their enrollment in college. With the rescission of DACA, Dream students need institutional safety nets to assist with, and assure, their continued enrollment and overall support. An overview of undocumented students' issues, the DACA dilemma, and specific actions that colleges can take to institute policies and practices that support DREAM students will be presented. Specific services, strategies, student stories, and approaches in working with Dream students and how the Dream Center was established on campus will also be shared. This session should particularly benefit those institutions, faculty, staff, and administrators who are searching for alternative ways to support and guide their DACAmented students, as well as staff who provide, or would like to provide, direct services to undocumented students but may not know the appropriate approach.

When the ### hits the fan: Reactionary Programming Toolkit

Presenters: Monica M. Johnson, Rory Gregg James, and Brian Richardson | Indiana University, Bloomington

Cost: $25.00  |   Click here to purchase this webinar on-demand

Closed captioned

Annually, higher education professionals and student leaders approach the upcoming academic year with grand plans for timely programming and community engagement. These plans are often disrupted and “trumped” by a series of unexpected and ever unfortunate occurrences. Whether we find our communities facing the planned invasion of Neo-Nazis, consistent struggles with sexual assault, mass shootings, or the ever-present uncertainty of the next presidential tweet, higher education practitioners and student leaders must remain alert and prepared to build programming that supports their communities appropriately. This workshop intermingles case studies, simulations, and group dialogue in efforts to provide participants a substantial tool kit for crafting impactful reactionary programming to suit their campuses needs in time of division, crisis, or direst.

From Woodson to Wakanda: Emancipatory Pedagogy & The Miseducation of the Negro in American Higher Education Today

Presenter: Dr. Terrell Strayhorn

Cost: $25.00  |   Click here to purchase this webinar on-demand

Closed captioned

In February of 1926, Carter Goodwin Woodson, born December 19, 1875 to two former slaves, established “Negro History Week” as a time to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black people to society and to offer Blacks inspiration about their ancestry, legacy, and strength. Woodson, the 2nd African American to earn a PhD from Harvard University would go on to found the Journal of Negro History and the Association for the Study of African American Life & History; in 1933, he published “The Miseducation of the Negro,” which offered a solid critique of American education and schooling for Black kids. He argued that the system was designed to miseducate them about themselves, their history, their potential and place in society. In many ways, he argued for educational reform that righted the wrongs of miseducation, giving Black students accurate information about their predicament, their potential for freedom, and the power of their history. Fast-forward to 2018, Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther—a story about T’Challa’s heroic return to the African nation of Wakanda to assume his rightful place as king—is reminiscent in many ways of the goals of Woodson’s book. In this interactive session, Dr. Terrell Strayhorn, a leading voice on issues of race, equity, and diversity, will draw bright lines of connection between Woodson’s book and Coogler’s film to advance the need for “Emancipatory Pedagogy (EP),” a form of teaching/advising that empowers the disempowered, documents the undocumented, and liberates the learner to the place of possibility. Using a smooth blend of theory, social commentary, empirical evidence, and anecdotes, Strayhorn will offer specific strategies for doing EP in higher education. Come to learn, to be challenged, provoked, and inspired; leave ready to enact what’s learned in social justice work, to make a difference for students, and to create change as an educator! This session particularly benefits higher education professionals charged with developing, managing, or carrying out a race or social justice agenda like faculty researcher, chief diversity officers, multicultural services staff, graduate students, and K-20 outreach workers.
