Meet the TC Team: Welcome Shani Kipang!

The Teaching Commons is excited to welcome and work with Dr. Shani Kipang, who will be joining the team on a 12 month engagement through March 2024. During this time Shani will collaborate and spearhead strategic initiatives to support DEDI (decolonization, equity, diversity and inclusion) centred practices in York's teaching and learning spheres.

As an educator, curriculum designer and program planner, Shani brings over a decade of capacity-building experience in higher education and 20+ years in community engagement and participatory planning. In diverse roles and settings, Shani has facilitated the design and implementation of strategies for collaborative knowledge creation and mobilization. With special interest in experiential and dialogic learning, Shani has led multi-modal curriculum design and capacity-building in areas including transformative conflict resolution and accountable space, equity-centred and anti-racist pedagogies, intersectionality & neurodiversity, student-faculty partnerships and engagement of Experts by Experience (EbEs).

Welcome Shani!
