Teaching to Transform: Practical Strategies for Liberatory Educators
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARW 6291 2.00
This course will provide students with the tools needed to foster transformative learning experiences in academia as well as sites of popular education. We will engage with feminist and critical pedagogies, integral and embodied learning, intergroup dialogue, and deep education. This course will emphasize practical skills for applying these theoretical frameworks to actual classroom or workshop settings. We will pay particular attention to facilitating difficult conversations related to gender, diversity, and social justice. Students will develop a statement of teaching philosophy, create an original syllabus, deliver presentations and lead group activities.
