Collab: code, decolonized

Spring 2022

Taught By: Dejohn Huffman and Xin Xin

Section: G

CRN: 11961

Credits: 3

Code, decolonized is a teaching practicum that investigates the ever-shifting roles of software and explore new forms of code pedagogy through queer, Black, abolitionist, and intersectional feminist consciousness. We will research, experiment, and practice new ways of learning and teaching programming languages for the web through perspectives that are traditionally overlooked and under-recognized in the technical classroom. Following bell hook’s vision of “education as the practice of freedom”, this course equips future-educators with tools to reframe their understanding of traditional computer science education and craft socially-engaged course materials. By the end of the course, we will culminate in an array of syllabi, collaborative tools, assignments, in-class exercises and present them through an end of the semester symposium students will facilitate and attend outside of class time. This COLLAB studio partners with the Processing Foundation, Emergent Works, and POWRPLNT and is well suited for students who are invested in pursuing teaching careers after graduation, as well as those looking to deepen their understanding of code and community work.

Open to: All university graduate students and upper-level undergraduate degree students.
