Decolonising the Curriculum

Practical advice and guidance

Education has the power to shape our understanding of the world, and the curriculum plays a critical role in shaping that education. The curriculum has been influenced by Western perspectives, which have excluded and marginalised knowledge systems from diverse cultures and communities.

At the University of Aberdeen, we recognise that this focus has resulted in an incomplete understanding of the world that can be addressed. Join us in our journey towards creating a more equitable and inclusive curriculum that truly represents the diversity of our global community.

This Toolkit resource aims to provide practical guidance, ideas to spark conversation and questions to consider when creating learning resources for our whole community.

If you would like to read more about the project, look at case studies or explore additional information, please see the Decolonising the Curriculum webpages.
