Self-Assessment Tool for Social Justice in Teaching
This activity was developed by DISCs (Disciplines Inquiring into Societal Challenges). The DISCs Self-Assessment Tool is intended to help users gauge their own levels of competence and comfort in the themes of gender-consciousness, interculturalism, and community, both in their individual pedagogical practices and wider academic engagements. Based on your assessment, you will be provided with useful readings and resources to help you further explore these issues.
This tool is useful for teachers themselves to self-assess (alone or in community or collaboratively with their students) the different areas where they may be more and less conscious of social justice in their teaching practices (e.g. choice of readings, inclusion of diverse learners, awareness of historical roots of gender and race issues in higher education).
Go through the self-assessment tool and look at the recommendations towards the end. Some of the recommendations are full books, and you may not have time to read them all, but you can have an idea of areas where you might want to explore more. Where you seem to be particularly competent in an area, the tool does not recommend further reading for you, but instead recommends that you share your work with others.
Around 10-15 minutes to take the self-assessment and another 10-15 minutes to read the results.
