About the Community

The Decolonising the Curriculum (DtC) Community of Practice is a group of colleagues (students and staff!) who share an interest in identifying colonial injustice in institutional structures and the history of subject disciplines.

The DtC Community seeks to foreground existing and bring about new initiatives to change learning content, teaching and assessment practices that move away from a Eurocentric lens and embed alternative and hitherto undervalued ways of knowing, teaching and assessing.

By doing so, we hope to make our curricula more accessible, relevant and inclusive, enabling our students to become ethically and socially aware graduates. We work in partnership with students and each other to adopt an anti-racist lens in our teaching and share good practices and resources.

The Community of Practice is open to anyone, especially if you:

  • have an interest in Decolonising the Curriculum initiatives
  • want to understand decoloniality, decolonial thinking and what decolonising education means
  • wish to meet colleagues with a shared interest and bounce ideas off of

Get involved!

If you’d like to get involved, please consider joining our community on Microsoft Teams. If you have questions, you’re also welcome to reach out to one of our co-leads.


Our community believes that good ideas come through dialogue within the community and by having a horizontal style of leadership. As such, we have co-leads and no one ‘leader’ as we seek to draw on the expertise of the collective rather than look to one person.
