Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion PIE Institute

JEDI PIE words next to PIE chart

What is JEDI PIE?

The Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE) Institute builds a community of JEDI protagonists through 25 hours of practice of developing anti-racist pedagogy and dismantling white supremacy in online teaching.

Special attention will be paid to accessibility and universal design for learning; microaggressions in teaching practices; anti-racism in designing assignments and assessments; and centering student voice and experience. Participants will receive expert feedback on their responses to prompts, as well as the opportunity for individual consultations via office hours. Participants will:

  • Identify and assess personal goals for anti-racist pedagogy practice in online teaching.
  • Examine and demonstrate knowledge of historical and contemporary institutional and individual racism and white supremacy in education practice.
  • Assess current assignments, assessments and teaching practices through a critical race perspective.
  • And design strategies for inclusive and equitable engagement.
