Culturally Responsive Pedagogy and Open Educational Pedagogy (Webinar)
February 18, 2021 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PMFree
Both Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP) and Open Educational Pedagogy (OEP) can offer us insight and support as we shift to bring students quality and compassionate education during the COVID-19 pandemic and the aftermath of George Floyd’s killing. CRP advocates that education utilize student’s lived experience; OEP advocates that education empower students as partners in the creation of course materials and disciplinary knowledge. When we understand these as two sides of the same coin, we can create educational experiences in which students draw upon their own lived experience to further the knowledge within our disciplines. In doing so, we build our students’ confidence in the value of what they bring to the classroom setting, and we let them practice the skills (and joy!) of being actors in the world and contributors to the social good.
In this webinar, we’ll have the opportunity to examine the overlaps between CRP and OEP and collectively explore how we might bring our current practices more closely into alignment with the best practices they advocate. Know too that this work will help sustain us as we find our own way through the pandemic. Indeed, if we take it on, we (our students, our institutions, and ourselves) will emerge stronger on the other side.
