Webinar on Critical Pedagogy
I think it is best to think of critical pedagogy as an ongoing project instead of a fixed set of references or prescriptive set of practices–put bluntly, it is not a method. One way of thinking about critical pedagogy in these terms is to think of it as both a way of understanding education as well as a way of highlighting the performative nature of agency as an act of participating in shaping the world in which we live. (Henry Giroux: https://truthout.org/articles/a-critical-interview-with-henry-giroux/)
In this webinar on critical pedagogy Ihope to start my discussion with a brief discussion of Paulo Freire’s work in The Pedagogy of Oppressed and then move on to discuss , specifically, how Mark Bracher elaborates his views on radical pedagogy. While Bracher’s work might come across as too much top-down pedagogy, heavily reliant on studies of consciousness and the brain, my hope is to offer a mixture of Freire’s seminal thought with Bracher’s deep understanding of learning and identity formation.
