Innovations in Social Justice Pedagogies: Disrupting the Narrative

Innovations in Social Justice Pedagogies: Disrupting the Narrative

Innovations in Social Justice Pedagogies: Disrupting the Narrative brings together faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students interested in innovations in pedagogy from a social justice perspective. In particular, this network will focus on 4 interconnected areas: aspects of pedagogy such as evaluation and assessment techniques, accessibility in teaching and learning, social justice storytelling – how stories are integrated into the classroom, and the research and development of best practices in syllabus production looking at options for creating templates for interactive course outlines with a focus on accessibility and sustainability.

Activities will include research, focus groups with undergraduate students, public learning opportunities in the form of pedagogy workshops with invited speakers, and the creation of a digital pedagogy hub with syllabus templates and shareable resources across campus.
