Event description

Description

Each teaching circle will take on a specific text (provided free of cost to participants) as a starting point for a semester of intimate discussions on pedagogy and its connections to the production of knowledge, values, skills, identities, agency, and power. We will focus in particular on our current political and social context, and on the insights of critical pedagogy in and outside our classrooms. Fall17’s Circle will read Henry Giroux’s Neoliberalism’s War on Higher Education, a 2014 text examining how neoliberal policies, practices, and modes of material and symbolic violence have radically reshaped the mission and practice of higher education.

Those participating in the Fall 17 Circle will be able to pick up their books from the CID in late August. If you have your own copy of the text, feel free to join in!

The circle will meet on the following Fridays from 1-2PM.

  • 1-2PM – Discussion of Introduction through Chapter 2 – Sept 22
  • 1-2PM – Discussion of Chapter Three – Oct 20
  • 1-2PM – Discussion of Chapter Four – Nov 10
  • 1-2PM – Discussion of Chapter Five – Dec 1

Objectives: Workshop participants will . . .

  • discuss and examine critical pedagogy and its connection to the production of knowledge.
  • examine their (and other’s) role in the university of today.
  • collaborate with colleagues in an examination of university and personal practices.

Facilitated by Dr. Mari Ann Banks, Professor of Multicultural Education
