Center for Engaged Pedagogy


At the Center for Engaged Pedagogy, we believe that teaching and learning is a transformative process. Both students and teachers engage in meaningful teaching and learning practices that foster mutual growth and facilitate the collaborative cultivation of knowledge. We are committed to supporting and striving towards inclusive and innovative pedagogical practices that acknowledge diverse ways of knowing, forms of expertise, and academic pathways.

Centering/Burdening: A Dialogical Resource on Racism, Anti-Racism, and Pedagogy

Centering/Burdening is a student-produced resource that critically examines the ways racism shapes higher education, recommends anti-racist practices that instructors can adopt, and invites community dialogue about what anti-oppressive teaching and learning can look like.  

Crafting Community Agreements

Community agreements are the principles that group of learners share and collaboratively create to identify how they will together. Consult this resource for guidance on how to co-create community agreements and for reflections on what community agreements can and cannot achieve in the classroom.

Anti-Racist Resources for Instructors, Staff, and Students

Inspired by the discussions of the Anti-Racist Reading Group in 2020-2021, we offer this living resource list of books, articles, and videos to expand upon the Anti-Racist Reading Group’s Syllabus and to encourage critical thinking about anti-racist pedagogy.  Our resource list is also available in PDF form.  

Transition to In-Person Teaching & Learning Guides

As Barnard begins the transition from remote to in-person teaching and learning this upcoming fall, these resources provide guidance for faculty and students on what to expect this semester and offer practices to help you feel more confident and comfortable returning to the in-person classroom.
