Decolonising Knowledge in a Digital World

Date Thursday, Nov 28  Time   –   

How can a new recognition of the knowledge excluded from the tradition of the West carry us forward in the future? The knowledge that is considered relevant to the future has largely been constructed from the same sources, filtered through the entrepreneurial ideology of Silicon Valley. However, movements to decolonise the curriculum present an alternative pathway that challenges the traditional assumptions about knowledge and our new assumptions about the digital. Join this presentation and discussion on new doorways for thought for educators, administrators, and designers. How can de-colonising the digital open new doorways for us all?
